Most likely you blew a fuse. Before anything else, you should check all of the fuses. There is more than one fuse box in your car, so be sure to check all of the fuses. If you don't find any blown fuses, I'd recommend getting the car scanned. Normally I'd recommend going to advance auto, napa, or any of the major parts stores, because they will scan it for free. Since you can't do that, you can go to the parts store and buy a code scanner. You only need a very basic scanner, usually about $35. Once you have the engine p codes, you will know what circuit, or circuits, have been affected and you can start tracking down the problem.

Correct and when your working with wiring on a car, always a good idea to remove the negative battery cable to avoid issues like this.

I checked all fuses with a fuse light. They all work. My check engine light is not on so it does not detect any codes. I believe I triggered the anti-theft system and its either not registering my keys or I have to reset my anti-theft system. But I don't know if there is anyway to do that. And Tom thanks for your answer also, I learned the hard way!

Try unhooking the negative battery cable from the battery for 20mins and reconnect and see if that will clear the system. Worth a shot.

Thanks Tom, But no luck. I just took it to the dealership. They said it is the Integrated Power Module and needs to be replace. Has anyone heard of that? Well if I let them fix it, It cost $800.00. Does anyone know if that a fair price? They said I can leave it there for a few days before I can make the decision.

What did you end up doing? My charger is having the same issue?
