when was your last tune up? is it getting fuel? did it act this way before the new ignition switch? also, check your ecm relay.

I had I guy come over he said I have presure on the fuel line - was running then the switch went bad - but it would start with the remote start now nothing - what is the ecm relay

Couple guys said to disconnect the remote start it might be the problem

ecm is the computer. it is possible your new igniton switch is bad, also possible that it has to do with your remote start.
