Check fuses first, if it's not that get the wiring diagram for your car (there's a few minor differences between the Cali spec and the normal model) and work your way through the emission control system. The way I see it, it's probably the ignition relay that's failed, that's the one part in the ECS that gets powered by the starter position of the ignition switch.
