Hi,

have you checked for fuel and spark?

Is the security light on steady, blinking, or goes off after about 10 seconds?

the security light goes off after turning key. The car iks getting spark not sure if fuel pump is pumpiong but sounds like it
HI,

Ok, even if fuel pump is operating, it doesnt mean you have proper pressure to start the engine.

Proper fuel pressure is 53-61psi. As you can see, it requires quite a bit of fuel pressure to start and run.

the proper way to check is with a fuel pressure gage.

Absent this, spray some starting fluid or even carb cleaner into the throttle body and try to start. If it starts and runs for a few seconds, then replace the fuel pump.

If not, then compression should be checked for possible broken timing belt.

If ok, then the crank shaft position sensor, cam position sensor and onboard computer all need to be tested. Unfortunately, these require the use of a diagnostic scan tool.
