If my engine turns but does not start, does that mean the problem cannot be the battery? Radio, horn, etc work fine too.. I was thinking if the car didn't even turn, then it would be the battery?

I have narrowed the problem for the engine not starting to code 2774 - engine cut off time. However, I don't have the slightest clue what this points to.

Will the car be able to throw new fault codes since the engine doesn't even start?

What is the secondary air system for? Could it cause the engine to not start?
