Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
"CC" is actually not a code, what it actually refers to is the "crank cycle" and the digit is the amount of times it has attempted to start.
Depending on what is meant by "won't start" is what will determine the diagnosis route, I say this because no start could mean it cranks but does start or could mean it doesn't crank either. To start you off you would start with the basics, crank but no start would mean start with compression, spark, fuel, air. No crank you would want to start with things such as the battery, connections, starter solenoid and electrical checks to it and starter testing. Again this ALL depends on what the actual "no start" means.
Thank you!
