Q.My car is giving me problems it wouldn't start the hazards made the weird noise the lights wouldn't work the locks wouldn't work but the battery is not dead. I put it in the shop and the car worked but then it stopped. He diagnosed it and everthing came up fine. He changed the ingnitor and it worked fine but then i tried to start it again and it wouldn't start.

More Info required Let's do some simple tests and make sure we do not miss anything.
Turn the ignition switch on and be sure the check engine light comes on for 3 seconds and then goes back out. If it does, check the car for spark. Do this by removing a spark plug and plug the wire back on it. Ground the threaded end of the spark plug to the engine, and then spin the engine over to see if it sparks.
If you are getting spark, remove the gas cap and place your ear next to the spout, have someone turn the ignition switch on. You should hear the fuel pump "hum" for about 3 seconds each time the ignition switch is turned on.
