when you turn the ignition, do you hear anything. check your battery, alternator, could be a starter. i mean do the basics first.
the person that sold me tha car had the same problem after an engine wash and he told me to be carefull because the ecu box is cracked and i think that somehow some water got at it again after a big rain. the simptoms are those of an engine that has no ignition (battery is ok, the starter is doing its job and all the other things because i already checked) i managed to get it running today but after 10 meters of ride, changing the car's position the engine simply stopped working and now refuses to start again.
