Mastertech1 :

Hello. When stating it does "nothing" does it crank over , but not start, or does it not even crank over at all?

Customer: It does nothing at all . Have power to everything . But don't try to turn over .
Mastertech1 :

Providing that the battery connections are good, take a look at the under hood fuse/relay box...verify that all fuses and fusible links are good. If so, take ignition key..lock the drivers side door from the outside with the key, wait 30 seconds, then unlock it again with the key. Making sure, of course that it is completely in gear, and see if this resets it. Let me know. Thanks!
