Windows dont move just make a clicking sound, locks only work if the car is running, checked all fuses from the hood the kick panel and the inline fuse to the alarm box which reminds me that the alarm doesnt respond to the key transmitter have to manuel lock and unlock with key.

If you found a penny in the power socket, 9 times out of 10 the penny arc'd and tripped the fuse that the cigarette lighter in on. It must also control your windows and locks. Find the correct fuse that blew and replace.

well if your 12v power source isn't working you must have missed a fuse somewhere

Sorry for late reply. My son just shorted mine out. Not one but 3 fuses blew. First was a yellow 10amp found above footbrake on left. Other 2 were a yellow 10amp and a blue 15 amp on the passenger side footwell panel. After changing all 3 everything is fine.

The ones above footbreak are not easy to see, you have to crouch and look up, oddly there is no cover over them and I see no mention of that panel in owners manual. It is there though
