The 1610 code has me wondering if you have a communication network issue caused by one of the modules. If this is the case it would cause the car to not pulse the injectors or provide spark. The most common cause of this would be the AC amp unit.

How much repair/diagnosis are you going to do yourself?

Do you have a scan tool?

Is the security indicator light on when the key is in the run position?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the security is on with the key on and wile cranking
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Ok. So that means that the problem is in the security module. You are going to need a good scan tool to communicate with the security module. There's no way around it.
