Hello it wont start with the key and it wont start when jumping it, do you see it spark when you jump the starter? No issue with the THEFT lamp flashing fast when you turn the key to on?

Hello, do you need more help with this concern?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Will it even crank when doing this? If not that means the starter is bad, starter is not getting power from the battery. If the starter makes an effort to engage but the engine can not turn then the AC compressor pulley bearing may be locked up.
