    shoot the mechanic who says the car is fine and is still unable to start.
    check out the main fuses in engine bay, your headlight wiring has probably burnt some main fuses. and I am sure you have installed aftermarket relays to directly give power to headlights from alternator.

    Verify that coils and fuel injectors are getting current and fuel is coming in petrol lines. There could be two issues in Fuel system or in ignition. First segregate what is causing the problem only then you can procede with its rectification.

    Thank you for all the help. My machenic kept saying its computer chip has burned which he wud replace for 50000 after readin comments i went to another machenic asked him to chck fuel system and turned out fuel injector had stopped working so got a new one and nw its fine. One question can dimming of headlights be the reason for burning of fuel injector
