Ok, so i get home tonite, and i go to lock my doors (on the remote/key), and i dont see the blinkers flash. i then proceed back into the car, and notice the map/dome lights dont come on when i open the door. i go to start the car, put the key in the "on" position, and the only light on the instrument panel is the oil light, but it is kinda faint. i proceed to start it, and everything is fine. so i shut it off and go to lock it again. same thing, no blink. i go back to start it again, this time, NOTHING.
i'm thinking i blew a fuse. its 1am right now and cold as heck, so i didnt get a chance to see if that is the case.
Did you leave your lights on? Sometimes (like 1 in 100 times I get out of the car, the lights won't automagically go off - But I always notice, start the car and turn if off and the lights go off with it). Or, you left a dome light on or something. Get someone to jump you. I keep one of those Coleman Emergency Jumpstart things in the trunk when I find myself stranded without anyone to give me a jump.
just happend to me. i went to the storage building where my car is to drive it around cuz right now there is no snow on the ground. turned the car over and nothing. so i took the battery of and went to scion. turned out to be the cold weather made the battery get a dead cell. so got a new one and she runs again!
