MY 2000 LW WAGON WONT START.

Car was running fine, stopped to get gas, and wouldnt start, starter wouldnt turn over, battery had power, but starter wouldnt crank. Not exactly a back yard starter fix, so it took us a while to get it fixed, now the starter turns and it tries to crank but has no spark, no codes come up when put on the computer. The crank sensor has already been replaced, which did not fix the problem. Any suggestions that might not cost more than replacing the vehicle?

Do you
have the same problem?

No spark? You had it running prior so I would re check your work to verify that you did not leave off and wires or connectors.

Start there

Do you have the V6 or the four cylinder engine?So the car shut off by itself and wouldnt start or you shut it off and it wouldnt start?

I have the 6 cylinder engine, I shut the car off to get gas and it has never started since.

The battery went dead (long after the starter died, the interior light was left on) is there some type of security thing that would cause the car not to start after the battery is dead for a prolonged period of time?

Is the security light on solenoid or flashing?
