Check battery terminals. If it is corroding, there will be a light blue "minty" colored residue on the + terminal. If so, take the battery out. Get a new one and new harnesses. Also check you're alternator, use a volt reader to see if its getting no any power at all.


Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. Will it run a few seconds on the starting fluid? If so, it's a fuel problem. If not, it's an ignition (no spark) problem. If you have spark and fuel but it still won't run, run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
