Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Do you see a theft or security light staying on on the dash at all or flashing at all when you try and start it and when it will not start you let go of the key (not turning it back any)?

Have you tried anything to disable the alarm and see if it starts?

Let me know,thanks Pete

I will check the light now. And i let go of the key it does not start
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Which light specifically should i be looking for?
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 4 months ago.

O.k.,let me know if you see a theft or security light on the dash near the gauges.It should say something like theft or anti theft or security or be a picture of a can with a lock across it.

Thanks Pete

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No that is not there
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 4 months ago.

O.k.,if you lock and unlock the doors with the key or remote does it start and run then at all?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Im thinking it must be something engine wise
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 4 months ago.

O.k.,can you tell me all that was messed with or repaired/corrected before this issue occurred?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The battery was corroded and same the with oem and the oem fuse had blown so we replaced both. Had it running. Then we realized that the AC coil relay was getting stuck closed so we replaced that. It started just fine last night but not today
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Sorry for the time delay in messaging. I had to step a way for a minute.
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 4 months ago.

Have you double checked to make sure the replacement battery isnt dead now?
