Hello and welcome to just answer, and allowing me to help you. Lets begin with a few questions to get a picture of your problem. Does it turn over ?how old is the battery?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Battery is a couple of months and it won't even attempt to turn over I put the key in and nothing happens don't even hear the fuel pump turn on. I believe it might have to do with and anti theft issue cause it was running fine and then I pulled a relay out to switch and I went to recrank it and it won't crank or even attempt

is it an aftermarket anti theft unit? when you try to start it can you hear a faint click by the starter?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Factory anti theft I just check the ignition switch I got power to all wires but no sound when trying to crank it ova
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 10 months ago.

we don't usually have troubles with the factory anti theft but we do with the starters because of their location. give me a bit I want to check something for you.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 10 months ago.

Besides the emoboliser is to dissable fuel going to engine so it won't start not to stop cranking. can you locate the starter relay and jump it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Where is relay located
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 10 months ago.

I'll send location and wiring schematic. If you jump it and it still doesn't turn over you may be in for a new starter, and that unless your very mechanically inclined won't want to tackle yourself. turns over because of it's location. It's under the intake manifold at the back of the engine.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 10 months ago.

also check the fuse that activates the relay first. ignition and engine fuse they should be inside fuse box driver's side

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Check all fuses good
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 10 months ago.

OK now you go to the starer relay and jump it and see if the starter turns
