Sorry I stopped responding for a while, my father was working on the car, and did a pretty dumb thing. He decided it was a good idea to jack it up, on a hill, without ramps, and try to turn it over.
When he crossed the leads on the starter, or whatever he did, he got it to crank for the first time, but it didnt start.
unfortunately, it caused the car to shift, and slip off the jack, and he'* been in the hospital for a week or so now.
Lost an eye, unfortunately.
Of all things to lose an eye for.
Now I'm more interested in getting it started so I can get it the hell out of the yard, so my parents dont have to look at it, because it'* caused the family a fair bit of grief.
I can't really afford to get it towed.
Any further assistance would be appreciated.
Security light still doesn't turn off, but like I said, he was able to get it to crank but not turn over.
