Sounds line a main fuse or fusible link. I would also check the ground connection and make sure it tight. Please click on "Mark helpful" if you're happy with the respond. Good luck :-)

That sounds like the security system is now fully active, check the owners manual for the disarm procedure. Or you could try making sure all but the drivers door is locked manually, then close and lock the drivers door with the key, wait at least 30 seconds, then unlock the door with the key not the fob. Hopefully one of those procedures will turn off the security system.

Tennis u think security I do to car was on like 30 second cut of and now want do nothing

That just add to the problem. It can be really tough to find what system has shut it all down.
