suggest that you check main fuse box,under the hood.look for black box.may be on drivers or passenger side fenderwell. remove the cover,turn the cover of fuse box over for fuse locations.look for a blown main fuse. such as e.c.m. fuse.or main engine fuse. i'm trying to visualize you engine. and the underhood,if the battery terminals are tight and free from corrosion, it has to be at the main fuse box.turn the key to on position, go to main fuse box under hood,make sure that you turn the headlights to 'on' position before you open the box on main fuse panel,this will tell you if and where the shorts at,if there is one.it may only be a blown main engine fuse. pull each fuse,one by one, checking them to see if any of them are blown.wiggle each fuse before you remove it,there may be a short in the main engine fuse panel. as long as your headlights are pulled on,if you find a problem,they will come on. this will narrow your search.make SURE your battery terminals are TIGHT. if you come across the problem,you know that battery's good.that headlights will come on when you find the problem.if all else fails,try a boost from another car with cables and go back through the system again. it may be a bad ground wire,and if the car starts after a boost,you'll know that it's a bad ground engine wire. the engine will not start,unless the motors grounded. that could be a bad starter solenoid,or bad ground to car from the motor.thank you for choosing fixya.com let me know if i've assisted you.look forward to assisting you in the future. oncallmech
