Check your fuses and fusible links located near your battery.If you have a testlight or multimeter check for power to your alternator.Will it jumpstart?How many volts are at the battery?Sounds like you may have a charging problem or your battery went dead.Do some checks/tests and let us know .Cheers Kevman

cheers for that. engine turns over just wont fire. smartlock light is back. just no injectors or fuel pump.i'm not too worried about the alternator. i have a new one coming. all fuses and links are ok that i can see. does anyone know where the relays for the injectors and fuel pump are?

I always forget this one.Turn all your accessories off,wind down the window and turn the key to the ignition position but DO NOT START the engine.Leave the ignition on for half an hour .The door locks should cycle on and off 3 times and you can try starting it then.The injectors are controlled by your Body control module and the relay for the fuel pump is either in the fuse box or under the coolant overflow bottle.Hope this helps.

It might be time to see if there are any fault codes.I think there is a way by bridging out the pins in your diagnosis plug .Someone else may know how to do it and may be nice enough to point you in the right direction.Otherwise scanner time. :)
