Recently bought and ran great when I purchased it but suddenly it doesn't accelerate properly when stopped. On highway at high speeds if I hit a bump u can feel a noticeable pickup in speed and power or vice versa I have no clue what to do

Started car in garage. Shut off. Tried to start 6hrs later. Car turns over, acts like its gonna start then falls flat on It's face. Shows "start fail" for maint code on dash.

Took it to a shop and they stated it was the computer under the hood, they said it got wet, which seem impossible they way it is sealed

My voltage meter reads 12 volts after recharging and I get nothing, no dash lights, head lights, nothing. Everything is dead. What should I try next?

repaced fuses, O2 sensor. Check engine light still on. what I should check next

top was down and I opened trunk and then it would not lock closed ,after sitting a few hours every thing worked fine ?Never did that before .no codes I could trip the lock with a screw driver but would not lock when closed

Che ked connections and have power to player in trunck.

have reset key fob. dash lights come on when I try to crank. battery has been charged that does not seem to want to hold a charge.

Also will not start or run until fuel is sprayed into the intake

The CODE keeps coming up after entering so I think either the code is wrong (doubtful) or I am doing some thing wrong. After entering the code number three times the wait (lockout) comes on and nothing happens. Any suggestions appreciated

My antenna got stolen. This is the black,rubber coated, non-retractable that screw in. Where and how much would this cost to replace it. Thanks
