a/"help your car wont start" <- if you already towed it to the dealer theres not much reason for us to help you diagnose it
b/ your headlights take 60 amps, your starter takes over 500. Just cause your lights light up is absolutely no indication your battery is good.
c/ your key fob works -based on the fact that the doors lock and unlock - is also incorrect. your key has a chip inside it that allows the car to be started so it could still be the issue. Its not in this case but dont assume your key is fine cause two of the 5 features of it work.
d/ your diablo is tied into a different system and has little to do with the no start situation
e/ did the vehicle crank at all or not? Theres about 4 systems tied into if it dont crank and about 20 if it cranks and then dont start.
That combination of "these work, those don't" sure makes it sound like the ignition switch or something immediately after it. Were you doing anything with the wiring under/behind the steering column?
Unfortunately, the wiring diagrams we have only apply to 2006/2007 model years so I don't know where to point you, especially in the dark and rain.
a/ Dealer is not open until monday morning, so I can still go out there and "fiddle" with it if it were something like fuses. etc... It dark and raining out now but I can get there tomorrow.
/b Tow truck boosted and it was a no go
/c car won't start with either of the key fobs. Unlikely that both keyfos would give out at the same time
/d yes predator is a seperate issue. I just threw that out there cause I don't want the dealer knowing about it but I can't get the tune out.
/e no crank, nothing at all. windows, radio and fan all not working but lights and trunk release from key fob are good.
maybe nothing I can do until dealer looks at it but I was wondering if anyone heard of or had this type of problem before?
e/ nothing happens on acc position? No lights on cluster? no gauges? If the radio. Check and see , other than radio and windows, other things that work on ly in acc position of the key to make sure there is a good signal coming out of the electronic ignition switch. Windows and radio work on position 1 but gauges come up on position 2.
If you have no cluster operation then thats most likely your issue. Its unlikely your ignition switch if other things get power like they are supposed to but if your i/c is failing that would cause a no start cause it is the gateway module to most modules in the car
