You can read your obd1 computer codes by using a jumper wire in the obd connector under the drivers side dash. there are good youtube vids on how to do it. it is simple. if there are stored codes in the computer this test should tell you. you will count the check engine light flashes and then go online or get a Haynes manual to see what the code means.

tried that and only showed "12". checked coil pack wiht test light and crankshaft position sensor with a multimeter. dont know what else would make it turn over but no start. any suggestions on what it could be?
