Does not fire up. I will mention that all electrics work(headlights,inside,turn signals all) but i dont have power on the sparkplugs no matter what i try Also that little buzzer that tells you you forgot something on before u leave sound sooo fast like crazy which i think there is a short circuit somewhere stiill but i cant find it Any Help ?? Now the car starts but stops after 2 seconds (we suspect immobilizer kills it) and we dont have the right connector for diagnosis due to it being an old model!
