Hello and thank you for your question!My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.Please give me a moment to type my response. Thanks
You have it listed as an 08 and an 03 which is it please?Also, if it's the 08, which engine does it have in it?
No need to request a phone call, but please give me a moment to type my response.
Is it the 2.4 or 6 cylinder engine please?
Also, did you have any power at the fuel pump?
Thank you, ***** ***** just a couple minutes to type out a response.
First, if you have power to the fuel pump, even briefly then it would indicate the computer is ok. I would check the timing belt to start with and also check for any codes. If you have a stored code in the computer for the cam sensor, the computer will turn off the fuel and spark, so even though you have power to the fuel pump, you won't have fuel injector pulse or any spark. The computer won't let it happen if the car is out of time. This could be a jumped timing belt or a broken belt.
One test you might be able to do to check the belt is to crank the engine with the oil fill cap off. Have a helper watch the camshafts and make sure they are turning. If they are and you don't have spark or fuel the next step would have to be pulling the timing cover and checking that all the timing marks line up.
Like I said, a jumped belt would prevent it from running, you should also have a P0340 cam sensor code stored in the computer as well.

Standby, I want to do a little research
Have you changed the timing belt?
Is the PCM powering up with this key?
Does the car have any aftermarket security system on it?
Yes, the powertrain control module, could also be called the ECM?
If it's not powering up you won't have spark or fuel or codes for that matter.
Does the anti theft light on the dash go out with the key in the ignition?
Also, I am showing the car has an ignition fail sensor. This will kill spark and pulse. I am not showing a location for said sensor though. Since you have power to the fuel pump, move a bit and make sure you have power to the ignition coil and to the fuel injectors. If you do, then I would consider the IFS as a possible problem. Especially if the security light is going out. I am getting mixed results in my searching in the manual to whether this vehicle has an immobilizer or not. There should be an antenna around the ignition switch if it does have it.
Immobilizer will kill spark and pulse.
