I contacted the dealer and he told me the main ground wire from the trunk had to be replaced at a cost of $1,300.00. Does anyone have any thoughts on this matter. If I could get it started it would make fixing it a whole lot easier.
Thank you for your help.
Doesn't the fuel flow automatically get shut off in a crash (along with the doors unlocking and the hazard lights flashing)? Could this be the issue? Maybe there is some electrical cut off to the ignition as well to also prevent sparks/fire.
