Great, what engine do you have and when was the timing belt replaced last?

Are you mechanically capable or will you need to find a shop to do the work?

Can you check that the engine can be turned with a wrench on the crank bolt?

Do the lights stay on when you hear the click?

How long since the belt was replaced and what was checked to determine the belt is good?
