The original keys were lost someone tried to shave a key and make one, but I think I might have something to do with why it isn't starting. All lights come, on door bells and it sounds like it wants to start but it wont until the battery drains out? I'm a girl and i'm doing my best but any suggestions on where to even start?

Hello, I'm Danny.

When you turn the key on to start does the engine crank over and not start or just nothing at all? Not even a click? Let us know and we'll go from there. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Hello again.

If the car has been sitting a long time it might have bad gas from sitting. I would suggest adding an additive called SeaFoam. You add to the old fuel and after a few minutes it will help start the car after sitting. I've attached a picture below of what the brand looks like. Do you know if the fuel pump is working? When you first turn the key on you should hear it operate for a few seconds to prime the system. Hope this helps and keep us updated. Thanks again for using 2CarPros.
