Sharp guy. Hooked up his $5000 diagnostic tool and found that a fault in the transmission was causing the control module to "deny start". He turned off this command with his diagnostic tool and the car started, and the fault did not return. John recommend to have the car repaired, that it was likely to have the fault again sometime later, and may "deny start" again. He found a relay that was likely going bad and perhaps causing the fault. I will replace that relay just in case The whole cost was $117, less than a tow to the repair shop.
