Hi,

If you have a crank with no start condition, usually the engine has either lost spark or fuel.

Here is what I need you to try. See if it starts for a couple of seconds using starting fluid. If it does and then stalls, we know it is a fuel-related issue. If there is no change, then suspect an ignition spark issue. If that is the case, you need to check for spark to the plugs.

Here is a link that explains how it's done:

Also, there is an inertia switch that may need to be reset, so let me know what size engine the vehicle has.

Take care and let me know what you find.
