Could be the computer, but not likely. The first place to start is checking for diagnostic codes. If you don't have a code reader, you can probably borrow one from Autozone or another parts store. I'd recommend buying one though - they're pretty handy to have and not terribly expensive.Write down the codes, then search for the code number on the internet. How did you check for spark?

You might check this thread, too. But a starter relay doesn't make sense if you're not getting any spark. A relay would be more likely if it's not turning over. http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t32276_ds501179
