Start at the spark plug end of each plug lead and check each lead is dry and not damaged. Using insulated pliers or insulated grips, and a new spark plug, rest the spark plug threaded section on the engine block. Crank the engine and look for a clean, bright spark. You might need a helper to do this. Repeat this for all the plug leads.
ONLY REMOVE ONE PLUG LEAD AT A TIME. Refit the plug lead your using BEFORE you remove the next
one. If there is damage replace ALL of them, then you get a constant spark on all the spark plugs.
Next, remove the distributor cap and examine it closely. There should be no cracks or splits In the body. The terminals inside should be clean, bright and shiny. Removing only one lead at a time check the connecting holes in the top of the distributor for damage or corrosion. If ANY damage or corrosion replace the cap.
Examine the rotor inside the distributor. The rotor should be undamaged and the metal terminal should be clean and shiny. If damaged or corroded replace it!
If it's an older 'points' setup check the moving points as they wear out over time. The more modern electronic distributors will need a specialist Auto Electrician to test the electronics inside it. Yours is probably the electronic type.

When you say "won't turn over" do you mean that it will not crank or not start? If it does not crank then it is an electrical problem. Check the battery and connections to be sure they are clean and tight. If it cranks but will not start, then it could be a fuel problem. Hook up a fuel gauge to see how much pressure you have. Could be a filter or a fuel pump going out.

You disconnected the battery and upset the anti-theft system. You need to reset it.

Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

It depends on your age, risk level and other personal factors that how often mammogram screening you need and what screening methods are used. The best way of knowing that what screening schedule is right for you is to talk to your doctor. However, in general case women need to get mammography once in a year. It could be more in case of high risk.

**NOTE** Only do this repair when the engine is COLD to avoid getting scalded by the coolant.
Most drain plugs are fitted to the lowest possible point on the radiator. Usually one of the two bottom corners. However, not all radiators are fitted with them. In some cases you need to slacken the clamp on the lowest radiator hose and pull it off to drain the coolant.

This may seem an odd suggestion but have you checked the hazard light switch on the dash and it's relay in the fuse box. Hazard lights are designed to work with or without the ignition key so you can lock and walk away from it when it breaks down.

There is no fixed price for this sort of repair. It will all depend on how much of the house is damaged and how bad that damage is. Get 3 or 4 builders to quote for the work. It can be a very expensive thing to fix.
