Got the car about two weeks ago, has worked perfectly fine. I have driven about 800 miles on it. I got in my car this afternoon to start it and the engine is turning over but not completely starting. The fuses, relays, and timing belt are all working fine. And the car is getting fuel. What could be causing the car not to start?
Do you

Good morning! It's possible there's a security Issue going on. Maybe the key lost its code or something along those lines. Is the "Security" light in the dashboard staying on? If so then we need to try another key or take the key to the local GM dealership for testing. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there

Hello,

When you turn the key to the on position without cranking the engine over can you hear the fuel pump run in the tank for 5 seconds? Also we need to check for spark. These guide will help us fix it:

And if the security light is flashing:

If we can hear the engine cranking over we can tell if the engine is in okay shape can you please shoot a quick video with your phone so we can hear the noise? that would be great. You can upload it here with your response.

Please run down these guide and report back.
