pull codes from you computer, your CPS might be bad.
check batteries
check cable connections to batteries/alternator. (computer may not be getting power)

Does the tach move? What condition is the oil in? Try to chck the fuel pressure also. My first guess, if the tach does move, is low voltage. The IDM need at least 10V to fire while cranking.

Look at the front of the engine passenger side , roughly the 10' o'clock position behind the vibration dampner. You need a 10 mm 6 point socket (3/8 drive), that sucker is in there. You will need to gently pry it out after removine the fastner. oil the O" ring and work in hte new one.... Have funnn Bill
