Hello, sorry to hear this is happening, does the key lock and unlock the car? did the key get wet at all? was it dropped?

Mr Lou, it is a no start. ignition is on radio can play and dashboard accessories. Obviously there is a problem with ignition system, the car does not crank; not sure if it is the security breach that caused the crash of the ignition system or if it may be something else; fuses and relays seems fine?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have nothing like service manual or scan for this vehicle. You know if they are available in USA?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
this is just a simple scanner for codes. Any scanner can do that. I meant a scanner that is specific and has the capability of programming the vehicle systems.
