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.

Cut break line should not cause the car to not start, in order for the engine to start and run you need good spark, injector pulse, proper fuel pressure and good compression, if you can check each one of these things and see which one you are lacking I will try and help you determine the cause.

If you take your 12 volt test light and or volt meter are you getting key on power to the starter relay on pins 86 and 30? Have you check all of your fuse to make sure none are blown?
