Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Is there a light on on the dash that says something like (security,theft or a picture or a car with a lock across it) at all with the key on or after trying to start the engine and releasing the key?The light may flash or stay on solid or turn off after a few seconds with the key on can you tell me what this light is doing?

Have you checked the battery to see if it is dead or low on voltage at all?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
