1998 Honda Accord won't turn over

Asked by Jun 24, 2017 at 03:38 PM about the 1998 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was out of town on work and my babysitter tried
to move my Honda, however she used the spare
key that was not chip-enabled, it was only meant to
unlock doors in case of emergency. I told her to
call my mechanic, not knowing she had the wrong
key, and he replaced the distributor. Now I'm back
for only three days, and the engine won't turn over!
My mechanic thinks it's because the anti-theft
system was activated. Can anyone help me fix this
without a 30mile tow and then God knows what
the dealership charges Me? While out of town
training I had to close my checking account so my
boss couldn't take back half my check like he did
with my predecessor, so I can't Uber/Lyft to the
bank, to get my prescriptions/groceries, I'm
screwed!
