Car will not start. Engine will not turn over. No noise.

Resolved Question:

Car will not start. Engine will not turn over. No noise. Could this also be cracked manifold or could it be fuel injection system? Also is there a recall for any of the above?

I am not sure which one it is. The key has a black protruding thing on it
Expert:  Gary replied 3 years ago.

August 2, 2010 by Buick dealer
Expert:  Gary replied 3 years ago.
ok if it is in fact the theft system that lock cylinder should still be under warranty.12 months or 12.000 miles if the lock cylinder has failed.if it will not start with the other key call the dealer and tell them what happened.it should still be under warranty with them
