Make sure you have at least 12.6 volts at the battery. These cars will not start and the security system will not reset with less than 12.6 volts. If however your battery tests okay, do this: Turn the key to the ON position and leave it for ten minutes. This will 'reset' the ignition rotation sensor, which often goes bad in these cars. You may have to reset the security system after this. Go here: http://www.bsecorp.com/files/techtips/ST9303l.pdf. Good luck!

My car won't start after attempting to replace the freaking low beam headlight. I never knew changing a headlight could be so difficult. Once I pried it off, we screwed in the H11 light and next thing you know the car will not start. All the wires are intact, nothing else was removed or snapped. Once putting in the new light and turning on the light to check if it works, it makes a clicking noise and the door lock kept going up and down and the lights inside the car were dimming. This is car is making my stomach hurt. I got this car with 12,000 miles now it has 25,000. Practically new. Now it will not start, what the heck all because we replaced the headlight. Really!
