Does it turn over and not start or just dead when you turn the key? How many miles on it?

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Check the wireing harness above the front passenger side axel...sometimes it will rub against axel causing fryed or broken wires.

I would suggest removing the camshaft sensor and see if the camshaft is turning when you crank the engine. If the camshaft does not turn you need to check the timing belt.

Wasn't that cured before 05? I thought that was just a problem with the 01 and 02 models. But, I'm not a mechanic and am wrong a lot more often than I am right.
