could be a cps, or something else. Need to scan for codes.

does your tach move you crank the engine?? if not, your CPS is dead. $30 at the dealer and a few minutes to change.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

!

Check the maxi fuse under the hood that covers the fuel bowl heater and the pcm relay. If its blown disconnect the fuel bowl heater on the side of the fuel bowl and put a new fuse in it.
