Your saying your car won't start? Resetting the computer won't help there. All it does is clear the stored codes. To do so, you can remove the negative battery cable for 20mins and reattach. Let us know how you make out.

Agreed with Tom, most likely its not a computer issue but I have seen water damage from a bad water drain on the passenger side windshield flood the DME (digital motor electronics). It is located on the firewall on the passenger side look for the wiring going into the fire wall its behind the cover.

if you have an early EWS car, it could require an EWS DME alignment but this requires a scan tool
