Thanks. Also My electronic throttle light (red)kept coming on right before My car wouldnt crank could this have something to do with it not starting?


Try using another key. Red dot means key not recognized. if it doesnt recognize any keys then you need a new ignition module. if everything in the car works but it wont crank when you turn the switch then also check the starter relay. its a small black plug in the relay box in the bonnet. The owners manual should have the details
