ok, I unplugged batt for about 15 min. hooked it back up and nothing. turn ignition and no lights, no sound, nothing. Also, I have to keep pushing the button in column to get key out everytime.

not sure what else to do. Is there a lever from the auto stick to key that pushes and allows key to be removed?

Thanks for your help.

When I turn the key, I can't put it in gear, it does nothing. Almost like no key at all.......??????

Sounds like you blew a fuse but which one and why. Does your dome light come on?

Maybe the big 50amp BCM fuse in the trunk beside the battery ground cable.

50 amp in trunk is good, dome light is on.

I took out the 50 a fuse and checked it. It's good, but now I have no dome light. I'm at a loss.
