Try locking and unlocking the vehicle with the key or remote and see if it then starts and runs.If this does not work let me know so we can continue from here.

Once the tire was replaced it wouldnt start ..turning the key back n forth jus the lights on the dash come on but wont start
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

O.k.,when you try and start it then let go of the key when it will not start do you see a light on the dash that says theft or security or looks like a picture of a lock across it at all?

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

I apologize for the delay as I had to run out yesterday and couldnt get back here again.

Have you checked to make sure all fuses are o.k.?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Could it be something electrical? There are a group of wires hanging down on the frnt passenger side checkn fuses now
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

It is very possible that one or more wires were or are damaged causing this here and need inspected and repaired.I would check the wiring where you see the group hanging down and see if any issues are found with the wiring at all.If any issues are found the affected wiring will need repaired to correct this fault here.If this is or was checked and found o.k let me know.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here.

Thanks Pete
