I, after changing a fuse and it being out for some time, it was the PAT fuse. After replacing it I am getting NO Cranking of the engine. I know this is usually the PCM causing this. Is there a way to RESET the PCM. I have done the disconnect battery and turn on the ignition 30 minutes, turn off ign and hook Batt back up. NOTHING. I have followed now at least 3 different RESET PCM options. Can you help.
Do you

If its not an anti theft problem could be one of the following below:

**No crank at all/nothing/nada when key is engage to starting position

Could be a blown fusible link, the starter, starter relay, clutch switch/park and neutral switch/transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery condition and connections are good. Note:If it doesn't apply disregard.

To add to this. Resetting the PCM will not make the car crank.

In addendum, I am not even getting the whir from the fuel pump as well. All dash lights are operating. Just NO turning of engine.

Went to the Dealership, the guy I was talking to on the phone turned out to be a Masonic Brother. I need not add anything from there. Car running like new. Thanks for your help. There will be a little extra in your Christmas Stocking. Until then. Peace!
