Check you eng compression and if it’s ok check for fuel and recheck you cap and firing order.

The car has an onboard diagnostic system. That is the first place to look. Trouble codes will have been set, IF you do not unhook the battery(power supply). Doing that erases all codes and until you get some mileage back on the car, the only code you will get is E52(power disruption). The oil-pressure sensor is an enginesafeguard.When low oil pressure in the engine isdetected, the sensor will stop the flow of fuel to the TB.Possibly that is the problem, but just a guess...........No telltale lights had illuminated?
