There could be a number of things that could keep it from starting No gas, Electrical, Computer problems, battery problems, security problems etc.

What year is your car? And how old is your battery?

Is the Check Engine light on?
OP can check for any stored codes that may relate to their issue, but the CEL is lit during the car's starting procedure even when the car is operating correctly. So it being lit alone isn't going to tell them anything. :)

Correct. My intention was the CEL on prior to the engine not starting. I imagine if the engine IS turning over, the battery is doing it's job. Either way, getting codes would help identify the issue.


Cheers :)
