    yes, someone jumped the car for me and then the car started but everything else doesnt work we replaced the battery but the windows, radio, sunroof doesnt work.

    I think the cables were on wrong at first and then corrected because when I first started it while jumping he switched the cable.

    I hope I am making sense here

    Although simple, is it possible the negative and positive leads to the battery were installed incorrectly and then corrected?

    Does the vehicle start up and idle? Give more detail on electronic parts and what they are!!

This sounds silly but you may be able to reset by removing the dome lite fuse and reinstalling, Lexus seems to use that circuit on some early models

Hi i have a mini cooper s clubman 2011, battery went dead, now i have a red warning light car on lift, indicators and interior lights, windows dont work

Sounds like either the battery is not putting out enough power. ie: Dead Battery (replace it) or there is a fuse or relay out. I would check out the battery first. Then move on to the rest.
Have fun'

03 silverado cluster went dead when battery went dead ,put new battery in and sill nothing ,can you help me

Do you own a professional type scan tool ? Would need to see if the instrument cluster can communicate with scan tool . That would be a priority . If the instrument cluster ,for some reason wouldn't be talking,checking power an ground for the cluster . Batteries going dead , changing batteries without a alternative power supply can cause modules to go to sleep permanently ! Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems I'am not saying that's what happen to your's . 2003 to 2006 GM had cluster problems ! The solder use in the cluster caused silver migration , instrument cluster caused a drain on the battery overnight . Watch these videos !

Battery went dead for my 2005 range rover but i recharged it right away. now my fuel and rpm gauge stay zero.speed and temperature gauge is ok.

Disconnect the battery both leads and join them together for half hour then see what happens if they still dont work then iam afraid you have had brown out in the system and this will have damaged the speedo unit electronics which are on the back of the speedo ,it has a mini computer on the back in fact and its expensive

2005 GMC Envoy key is stuck in accessory position in the ignition with dead battery and transmission stuck in park. Will replacing battery help or is it security system lock down? If it is the security...

Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.

Electronic key won't work after dead battery??? battery went dead and when recharged the electronic keys won't open the doors anymore?

If you have the Vehicle Owners Manual it will instruct you how to reset the Electronic Remote(s) as disconnecting the Battery or a totally discharged battery removes all power from the On Board Chassis Computers memory. Therefore you must reset the Remote(s) so that the On Board Chassis Computer can recognize them. If in Doubt, please consult your Chevrolet Dealer to rectify the problem.

I dont think my battery is dead, could be low. but i tried to start it earlier today and clicked once, and everything went dead.. no power no nothing.

Check your connections to make sure they are absolutely clean and making good contact. If so, take the battery to the auto parts store and have them run a load test. You may be surprised to find your battery has a bad cell.

1000 volt jump start placed incorrectly

Your system probably has a lot of relays and other electronics that are bad now. Your Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may be cooked as well. You may also have a fusable link that has been blown as well. The fusable link is basicly an in-line fuse that you have to replace the wire to replace the fuse. Get a wiring schematic and look to see if theres a fuse or similar that you misssed. You may find that you dont have power going to all or part of one of your fuse panels.

Hope this helps...
