Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 2004 scion tc.  when i turn the key over some, but not all, electrical components come on (rpm meter,
speedometer, etc go over) but the radio will not turn on and the engine does not turn or turn over at all.  i've
disconnected and reconnected the battery and the problem persists.  a key indicator light stays on as well, flashing after

You have a short to power somewhere it sounds like. Or some kind of high resistance either way it won't be fun finding ____________________________ [url=http://www.scion.com/takeonthemachine/]the machine[/url]
