So have u checked for spark?The best way to check for that is to remove two spark plug wires off the coils that are next to each other and have someone crank it over and watch for arching between the posts. Let me know what u find.

Ok no spark now were getting somewhere do u have a volt ohm meter if u do we can check ur crank sensor that's what I think is wrong with ur car since u don't have spark. If u have a volt ohmeter u can take out ur crank sensor and tested across the the two terminals it should read 800-1200 ohms when they go bad they read open no ohms value. Let me know what u find.

Will the code reader power up off the car?It's begining to look like a bad computer after u tell me if the tool powers up off the car I can then get u the trouble tree for no communication with the computer. Have u checked all the fuses?Sorry it took me so long to get back to u I have been fighting with my plumbing and my plumbings winning. Let me know what u find.
