      Well I have been running into this problem for a while now and I have posted on the forum about it before when my car had 85k miles on it, it now has 91k miles and it has been driving fine since then but now the problem is happening again... So basically my car won't start and it is such a wierd problem because the car drives fine and all of a sudden it just cuts off and I can't get it to start again, it cranks but never turns over.... Last time this happened the car just needed about 20 minutes or so before it can turn on again but it hasn't turned on in about 32 hours... Something to keep in mind is that the previous owner had a viper alarm and he put on after market headlights and tail lights, which is something I failed to mention in the previous post... Also i find it wiers how the headlights, tail lights and gages light up, the radio in the video also mindboggles me...If anyone has any ideas on what this problem might be, it would be much appreciated.

      P.s. here's a link to the old post

      They make cars soft now so you can hit pedestrians.

      Have you ever checked your fuel line? Make sure there is no leaks?
      Top line of the 3 lines running next to the coolant bubble. Check the "clip" that is located right in the back of the bay.

      just incase anyone was reading this and wanted to know what the problem was, it was the amp for the sub... it had a bad relay but now everything is good...i also took out all of the wireing for the viper alarm just in case...

      Good thing you figured it out.amps and alarms honestly do nothing but cause problems with can bus systems. Plus the fact the best buy(and most other audio shops) can't install anything without causing serious issues in these cars. I think we forget that these cars have setups that would blow us away with the amount of electrical stuff
