    Hello, we need more info to be able to help with this issue:
    Was all this work done to remedy the No Start problem?
    Or did the No Start problem caused by one of these repairs?
    Does the engine crank over?
    Is the check engine light on?
    Diagnostic trouble codes stored?

    Have the brake switch checked/replaced. If the brake switch goes bad the car wont start.
