Have you tried checking the starter solenoid? is real simple test


Does it crank over or does nothing when you turn the key?


When you turn the key on is the anti theft light flashing?

Check the anti-theft device. Got out of my daughters 99 in the summer and ran into the store. Came out and nothing. Seems you have to cycle the lock-unlock key fob if the door is opened then closed.


It does not crank over, it makes no noise. What do you mean by cycle the lock-unlock key fob?


If you have a key fob, with the door closed, pressed the button to lock and door, then press the button to unlock the door. They try it.
