However, if the EWS system is defective, the battery is dead, or the battery's fusible link is damaged, or of course your starter is busted (pretty rare) you won't get a crank at all.

I appologize for not being more clear... I mentioned that it would turn over but not crank.... I guess I should say it will crank but NOT start up...

Again thank you for the quick response!
