Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to begin to diagnose this no start issue the first thing you are going to need to do is to scan the computer system and see what the fault code and or codes are that should be setting. If you can get this done and post back with the results I will see if I can help you determine the cause.

tried to scan it but it keeps saying no link tried the scanner on another car and it worked fine.Do you think the ecm may have went it has 170k on it if so where is the ecm located
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

That is sure a possibility and if that is the case that would explain the lack of communications with the scanned. Start with checking pin #16 on the DLC for power, if it shows none then check the #19 fuse to make sure its in place and not blown.

Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

Okay let me know and we can work from there if need be.

sorry one more thing i wanted to tell you as soon as i turn the key on the cooling fans come on and the climate control is off.Would this be easier if i were to call you
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

The cooling fans coming on with the engine and AC off would sure point towards a failing computer as well. Let see if you can get the DLC to read after you check the power to it.

sorry that took so long i do have power dlc
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
still wont link up
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

That would usually indicate the ECM has failed.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
now when i replace it i am going to have to have the key reprogramed should it link up before i get the programing done
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

The ECM as well as the key are going to require programming.
