My car has an automatic transmission.
The code you listed, P1727 indicates that the engine speed sensor is not providing a signal to the computer. Without knowing the position of the crankshaft, the ECM does not know when to inject fuel or when to ignite a spark. Further electrical tests can confirm the sensor is failing. If you need help with testing and repair, a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, will be able to test the sensor to diagnose the no start and guide you with the next steps.
