Hey everyone with this problem! Theres a fuse under the hood in the front of the fuse box. Its black and its not in the bow itself but under the cover though! two nuts hold it in place where your cable line comes in from the battery. The fuse costs $15.00 avg. most anyplace! Easy to change and everything will work inside your vehicle! Without it the vehicle will start and run but you will have no functions on the interior, or dash!

When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump make a whiring noise as it dispenses the fuel. If there is no noise. the fuel pump is not working.
Have you checked the fuel shutoff inertia switch.?
Check your owners manual for location.

The starter motor on a car takes a lot of energy, you may be able to use the radio but not have enough power for the starter. You also might not be able to start it because the motor's starter or it's relay is bad. So here's what to do:
Check the connections on the battery, try loosening the connections and moving them around a bit, then tighten them down good.
Next go try to start it up again. If it still doesn't respond, turn your headlights on and see if they are still bright. If they are, then I would look into the starter or the starter relay.
The relay is in a box somewhere under your hood, possibly with some motor related fuses. Take the cover off and look at the under side of it. The cover should have a sticker displaying which relays do what. Now look for the air conditioner relay. Check to see if the air conditioner and starter relays have the same number printed or stamped on them. ONLY if the numbers mach, put the air conditioner relay in place of the starter relay, and try to start it again.
If you still get nothing, then it is either a bad starter or wire somewhere. On this car it may be a bit difficult to find and reach, but try to get to the starter on the bottom of the car. You can find pictures online of what it looks like if you are not sure. Play with the wires and knock on the starter with something hard like a rock or hammer. It doesn't take too much to do it, even a firm punch can do it, just don't break it. If this works then the starter is bad and needs serviced or replaced.
If there is still no response after this, there is nothing more you can do unless you are capable of taking things apart and checking the wiring. Good luck!

Turn on your headlights and have someone watch them for you. turn the ignition key just as if you are going to start the vehicle. If all the lights stay just as bright throughout this procedure you probably have a vehicle with an ignition system fuse. The fuse may come in the form of fuse in the fuse panel or as a fusible link in the small red cable from the positive battery terminal. If it's in the fuse panel just replace it.(even if it looks okay, it may just be a fifty cent fix) If it's in the cable it then requires a test light and the ability to do a little electrical trouble shooting. It may come in the for of a sealed circuit breaker in the fuse box under the hood. Just check out your owners manual. If you don't have one and you have a parts store close by. You may even be lucky enough to have a parts store that sells Chilton manuals or something like it. If they aren't sealed in plastic you may find the info free by just browsing the pages in the store.
