Sorry for the video, I updated it try it again please. I checked the security light. It goes off when I turn the key.
Changed spark plugs, changed fuel filter(needed changed), changed battery.. My next thoughts are starter and distro. can you test a distro? I took the cap off and it is dry in there so no dreaded oil. If you are under the car towards the driver side wheel there is a black plate or box. either it or something attached to it is doing the buzzing as I can feel the vibration of the buzz through it.

Starter could be seized. Follow the red cable from the battery and it should go to the starter. If you pull that off and take it to O'Reilly's, they can test it. I will say I've had a few starters go out on my old '93 Chevy 1500. One time (out of three), their machine said the starter was good. Replaced it anyway and it solved the problem. Replacing a starter on the truck was easy (huge engine bay), but will probably be tighter squeeze for your hands on this car. You might give it a try though if you're even remotely mechanically inclined.
Hang on, if it turns over, it's not the starter. My wife's Alti had a bad crankshaft position sensor. Would turn over, but wouldn't start. Fixed it. Two days later, wouldn't start again, it was the upstream O2 sensor. Just throwing ideas out there.
I was planning on getting the starter tested just because of the buzz.. I pulled the air box and still didn't see it? I tried looking for diagrams and came up empty. The car does crank but there's is NO spark.. I pulled the cap and it looked fine.. I will try to start it with the cap off and check for spark there.. will a crankshaft position sensor cause no spark? I am hunting down the no spark issue for now.. the buzz I think is just a coincidence but once I get a spark I will know
well the buzz seems to be coming right from it.. going bad? will run down the spark one item at a time.. can someone give me a step by step on where it comes from so I know where all to check.. also can a Crankshaft position sensor cause a no spark?
