can you tell me the year and make and model of this car ?
with the jumpstart on the car are all the dash lights lit up ?
which fan was running ? the coolant fan under the hood or the inside heater fan ?
and it will not physically crank over at all ? not even a click from the starter ?
will it run on starting fluid ?
Hello, maybe I can help. Before you unhooked the battery, was the car starting and running normally?
If the vehicle was starting fine before disconnecting the battery, the passive anti-theft system may have been tripped by disconnecting the battery. Try locking and unlocking the driver door with the key, or if you have a remote, lock and unlock the car with the remote with all doors and the hood closed. Then try to start the vehicle.
