Problem started with no high beams, then the daytime running lights would blink a few times when I put the car into gear. The car stalled a few times, but I was able to get it started eventually. Now, the car won't start and I don't have power window's, wipers or dash gauges. They all stopped working. I cant hear the fuel pump either, but I heard it yesterday! Checked the Schroeder valve and the car isn't getting any gas. Please help!

Check batter for condition including load test most places do for free then check fuses under hood. Youmight also have a bad pump but check battery first.

I called the shop and they had to tow my car in and have the mechanics find out what the issue was. They said the ignition switch was bad and replaced it. I picked up the car up about 5 days ago and it seemed to be running great. I still didn't have high beams or daytime running lights. Also the service light was on and chimming noise when I opened the door. I went back and asked them why there was new issues and they brushed it off to no fuse for the drls. Now today, I had a hard time starting the car and the engine light is on again. They can't look at it till Friday! I just paid them $210 for fixing the ignition switch! ! I'm so frustrated, I thought it would be fixed! Now what?

Auto parts can scan for codes and they do it for free normally the big chain stores. As far as drl the fuse should be under hood and marked so put a new one in and see if they work however the chiming may need an anti theft reset seepic.

Thanks for the info. I will try and get to a auto parts store to see if they can scan the code. As far as the chiming when the door is open, it sounds more like when I leave the headlights on. Would that noise still be the anti theft system?

If it's while lights are on then it's a warning for that if it does it with key off have the guys that put eh ignition switch in fix it, however it may be a body control module problem which only a scan by a pro can tell that.
