Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.

Ok, does the vehicle crank and not start? Or does it just do nothing at all, like no dash lights or anything?

It dosent crank
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.

Ok first thing to do is check all of the fuses, under the hood and in the in dash fuse panel. Why did he disconnect the fuse?

He was checking to see the ac panel
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.

Alright, try this. Get out of the car, close all of the doors and hood. Lock/unlock the driver door a couple times, then get in and see if it starts. If that does not work, you will have to start checking the fuses.

You could also try turning the key in the ignition back and fourth five times and see if that works.
