Hi J .... yup, there was good spark. Sorry I forgot to mention that.
J, you lucky guy, you happen to be dealing with someone with minimum experience and tools. I'm a financial guy with a little experience wrenching, but nothing to speak of. I do not have a diagnostic tool, but will look to rent one if you suggest it. I am pretty good at thinking things through, and at following direction.
Actually J, I trickle charged the battery while it was in the car originally. I didn't have too much faith in it, and just put in a new battery this morning before changing out the plugs. The engine spins like a banshee, but the plugs remain dry, so no go.
I just checked the security light, and yes it does flash.
As to the key fob .... ya know, I just saw that thing somewhere. It could be at my office and I can check tomorrow, but it isn't here at home in any of the usual spots.
And to the entry disarm plate .... are you speaking of the exterior door handle or the interior handle?? I do have a numbered key pad on the outside, but I don't have a clue what the code is.
