Quick fix: fuse, battery (a good one is >12.2 at least, and at 12.2 is slowly dying) or maybe a shot cable. Big problem: ECU.


First thing is charge the battery and have it tested. Will the headlamps turn on? If so, could be a bad battery, bad or dirty battery and ground connections, a bad starter solenoid or something else.

Ice look at all that jm thinking it might be a the theft system is there any way to bypass it?
