Hi, can anyone help me I have the car listed above. Two days ago I was washing it and my two year old daughter was inside playing with her toy, but had turned the stereo on and the volume on 0 so I could not hear it was on and of course drained the battery. It would not start and was just making a clicking noise, so a neighbor had jump leads and attempted to jump me. So put the keys in and nothing not even clicking or cranking now, and now says high engine temperature so charged the battery full and still the same no cranking, nothing except all the other electrics are working lights, windows etc. I changed the relay by the battery starter one? And still the same. Baring in mind I had no other problems before this, and engine temp was never high on the dash board. Any ideas I can try?
Do you

This happens often when a battery goes dead, try resetting security system it loses power so thinks somene has done forced entry. See our link.
