thanks for the reply man!

Yeaa i was noticing that when i decided to go in, i removed the 8 pin chip above the coil and well that sorda solved my no engine start issue, but in the whole process i think my sodering iron got the batter really hot and damaged it beacause now the remote feature is really glitchy. i did notice though when i took the 8 pin chip off there was a little wire going from the coil to the chip. Maybe that gave it power and then the power transfered from the chip to the battery?
(pics a bit dark but its the little silver wire going from the coil to where the chip was at)
