    Hi Heather Tolle, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Can you check under the hood fuses?Sounds like a fuseable link or fuse problem.

It sounds like a ground, probably at the negative side of the battery terminal. Take both cables off at the battery (a pain, I know) and clean the leaded contact area at the cable using a wire brush. Do you see any white or black stuff? That would be corrosion and even a tiny bit of it can cause your car not to start. Have you had problems since the head gasket has been changed? The ground from the battery to the block may have come loose. You could also try disconnecting the cable at the starter then to see if the starter is the culprit. Sometimes they short out internally. Check your fuses also. Start at the kick panel on the right side of the console. The other panel is located on the left side of the engine compartment, under the hood. I hope this helps.

If you charged the battery, it wouldn't matter if the car started or not, you should get dash lights. if i was a betting man i would say that you are not getting a good ground between motor and body of car. a poor ground messes up everything.

Sounds like the switch is toast. I would check for voltage at the switch connector. Could have also damaged the connector between the lock cylinder and the switch.

Is your dome light coming on? do the power locks work?
Your battery may be dead, or you may have blown a main fuse (under the hood)

Radio wont hol memory, dome light wont work when key switch off, and All lock wont unlock doors unless key in on.


Probably a fuse. You radio keeps it's memory using a constant power wire which is probably interlinked with the dome light, door locks, etc. Check fuses under the dash as well as under the hood for any blown fuses. Look for fuses labeled with your listed problems of things that don't work.
