i tried jumping it and charging the battery and it still wont start. my friend thinks its the spark plugs and told me to do an engine check. only problem is that i dunno what button to press to do that. any suggestions?
I agree with witeshark, 1st,....you state that you charged your battery, but it still does not start....2nd, Question....does the engine crank ?.....if so, 3rd, you need to see if you have spark...you can check this by removing the top engine cover & then lift one of the coil packs off the spark plug, crank engine & check for spark....Next you will need to see if you have fuel pressure.....there should be a valve stem on the fuel rail, you can check from there.... but, before you do all this check all your fuses, because there are fuse that control fuel & spark......
