My car has an automatic transmission.

You should first have the computer scanned to make sure the computer is not causing the no start and make sure the theft light does not stay on when key is in on position. If it does then the vehicle may have a steering column sensor for the theft system bad. You may need to have the system repaired and tested by a mechanic with a factory type scanner to work on the theft system.
