Default no start prob'* on my 94 SSEi

ok, I could really use some help if possible...
I have an issue with my 94SSEi,
first: the upper radiator hose blew, so i replaced it,
second:I tried to start it, but it would'nt turn over at all...I have good power for lights etc...
I have tried to jump it, replaced the battery, fuses, etc...
I can manually turn the supercharger pulley a little bit, but still no start.
HEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPP..
If noone can help with this issue, can you at least tell me where i can buy some cheap dynamite to fix the problem once and for all?

Did these two things happen at the same time, or was there some time between them? Do you hear a click, or anything when you try to start it? What are the lights doing during this time?

How far after the hose blew did you drive it?
How hot did it register on the temp gauge?
Was there any knocking sound before you turned it off the last time it ran?

Default re:no start

the hose and the no start were a few days apart...no noise, just no start...
lights are good, all guages, power everywhere.

Check all the battery cable connections. The starter is on a separate cable so all the lights & other electronics can work but not the starter.

What is the security light on the dash doing?

Edit - Can you get a big wrench on the bolt for the harmonic balancer and see if the engine will turn that way?

I'm starting to think starter or vats.

Please tell us what the security light does when you attempt to start the car. IIRC it should blink a little then go out.
