1 Answer


If it doesn't crank the engine or even have any headlights it's most likely the battery. Now if the engine spins when you turn the key to crank, but won't fire up then you need to find out if it is fuel or spark. A quick test it too spray some starter fluid in the intake cold air tube and see if it will run even briefly, if it does then it fuel, if it doesn't then its spark.
