There is a technical bulletin that could correct the issue you are having. The bulletin is 06-9-3 and covers water leaking into the left side of the vehicle causing corroded wire terminals connections. The bulletin shows many pictures that show where the water leaks in, what connectors to check for corrosion, and how to check for corrosion in those connections. If you want help having the fault detected firsthand, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the no crank issue that your car is experiencing and help you move forward with repairs.
