Or anything besides oil light and engine light on. But all fuses are good. Replaced the battery ground wire OEM style and cut the positive terminal off replaced with another. Now put the key in oil light on and engine light no click rest of dash dark, no lights, radio or any accessories. I don't know what I could have done. Any ideas?

Hello,

This could be a problem with fuse 19[80A] or fuse 20[40A], or both, being blown. They are both located in the Under hood Fuse Box which I have included diagrams with callouts in the diagrams down below. I have also included the starting circuit wiring diagram for you as well. Here is a link below to a guide explaining how to check a fuse, if needed:

Please check these fuses and report back with what you find out.

Thanks,
Alex

If I plug in a code reader. The car will start, but if I turn on any electrical accessory lights on dash go crazy. Unplug reader car shuts down.

Hello again,

Okay, so this could be a problem with the wire going from pin 5 of the Data Link Connector[DLC], where the scan tool plugs into. In the diagrams I have included a pinout diagram of the DLC. Please inspect the wire from pin 5 and report back with what you find out.

Thanks,
Alex
