Hello and welcome!

My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 10 months ago.

I take it the engine does not crank over? Do the headlights work? Dome lights?

Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash?

Can I start by getting your VIN?

Thank you!

If you are inable to get the VIN for me, dont worry as we can still continue moving forward.
