Why did you unhook the battery?
Sound like you have a bad connection at the battery.

Why were you trying to reset the computer?
How exactly was the battery checked?
Is the person advising you and checking the battery and the connection at the
battery a professional mechanic?

Unhooking the battery resets the cars computer, i had a mobile mechanic come out today to check the battery, it was good, he thinks its the Fuse block under the hood.

Why did you try to reset the computer?
Why does he think it's the fuse box as opposed to a fuse or connection in the box?
Did he tell you what you need to do now?

That's what the guy i bought it from said to do. The mechanic tested all the fuses and there was oil in the fuse box, so i just ordered one. Fingers crossed.

Could it be a faulty ignition? Or starter circuit? Solenoid wiring starter itself?
