Try getting on the ground so you can see under the dash. If a little black button is not sticking out of the underneath below your steering wheel, then look up into the wires on the left. You should find the button just attached to 2 wires. Re-connect the battery, get in and close the door, put key in to ON position and push the button for 15 seconds. The locks should go 3 times, hold it down the whole time. Then start it. If it still doesn't start, hold the button down while you start it. Be careful of the wires, mine broke off of the button and I am dealing with reattaching them with electrical tape. Pain in the a**!
Let me know how you make out
