Anyway, is you fuel gauge hooked up when you run it? If so is it in spec?
Is your spark tester hooked up?AnswerOkay, Spark is eliminated, the only 2 things left are compression or fuel.
By the way, the check engine light may or may not have anything to do with the no start.
Turn the key in the "run" position and listen for the fuel pump. IF you don't hear it, open the door to the fuel cap and have someone else cycle the key-don't crank it. The pump should hum. IF it doesn't, proceed with the following:
Access the throttle body. spray some starting fluid or other combustible liquid of a similar nature in it breifly while someone cranks the motor. If it seems to want to turn over and run, pulse the starting fluid into the throttle bore enough to keep it running... or not.
If it runs, you are lacking fuel. If it doesn't make a difference, it may be compression.
If you heard the pump run, then still follow the procedure with the starting fluid, un you can see fuel getting into the throttle bore when cranking.Answercheck you ignition switch,check spark, fuel pump, voltage regulator,pick up coil in dist, AnswerSounds like a Pass-key problem 2 me... AnswerIt could also be a vacuum leak or related air problem. You might want to have the mass air flow sensor tested just in case, you can do it yourself or have an auto parts dealer do it. I know Auto Zone does testing for free, I use them every time.
Because the car needs all the power it can get to start so you heater and maybe radio cut out for a few seconds.
because the electricity is to strong and ithas to get red of it some how
You do this by locking the car with the remote, leave it a few seconds then re-open and start the car after the red light has gone out on your dash.

Put gas in the tank, and start cranking. Should start in a few seconds.Put gas in the tank, and start cranking. Should start in a few seconds.
the timing is off
The fuel pump only runs for a couple seconds after the initial start attempt, then shuts off. Crank the engine for a few seconds. Then turn it off and then do it again for a few more seconds. Do this several times in order to get the fuel to the engine. After a few attempts, the engine should start.. Hope this helps...
Have you thought the alternator may be bad? Sounds like an electrical short. Check ground wires throughout the car
Is there gas in it? if it runs for a few seconds make sure there is fuel in it
Depending on the car and the year many current vehicles run for a few seconds at fast idle even on hot start to activate the pollution control devices in the exhaust system
try to ON or wait the heater first for a few seconds, then start the engine for diesel engine and gasoline engine. specially in cold country.
only a few seconds!
