1- do you have a voltmeter to check battery level at time of no start, that means one person turn ignition switch to start position and another battery , at that moment when key is turned to start what is your battery reading 12volts and higher ?

2- is there a red led security light flashing or steady on when you try to start ?

3- is there any check engine light on now?

4- have you had the car scanned to retrieve any fault codes ?

5- do you have 1 or 2 keys , if have 2 have you tried it ?

Please let me know

Thank You
