Also did you connect the ecu back up?
Of course! I followed all of the directions, everything is tight. How did my battery spark like that? Is it possible to fry an ECU with a spark? I wasnt touching the ECU when it sparked.

Did you re-connect the battery? Sorry...I had to ask
Yes. I tightened the terminal back on the battery. I could have gotten anything switched around because I only unlatched one terminal. And the ECU plugs can only go in their own places.

All of the accessory functions work, but the car wont start.

Turbokits needs a emergency hotline lol

Just asking... Sometimes it's the simple things we forget.

What's happening when you turn the key?

Does it do anything or just dead completely

There is a puller inside the fuse box- look at the diagram- you'll find it.
Which one would you recommend checking? You can tell its blown when the wire is missing right? Sorry, im electricity illiterate.

Man that really suks! I hope you find a blown fuse! If not , then I would put the old air box back in and call the dealer and act like you have no idea why it wont start:eek:

What the heck...check them all! Yes the metal connection between the two prongs will look fried or missing. If the car turns over and you have all of your dash lights working then the fuse or relay for your fuel pump would most likely be the culprit.

Yeah there is one called a start relay.... cant take it out with my hands. I checked a fuse labeled "start" inside the car, and it wasnt fried... Wow my luck...

It was OK putting it in, it wont be fun taking it out again... lammmmeee!!!
