    Dead in the water, HELP!!!

    I just installed PaceSetter Ceramic coated LTs with Off road Mids and it threw 3 codes I can't remember what they were but they were all related to the O2 sensors, but the car ran great, So I was driving it to salt lake city from Ely Nv. where I installed the headers to get it tuned, and it ran great, stopped at a rest area and turned the key off came back and it would not start, not even click, the headlights lights turned on and were bright , But when I turned the key on or to the start position the message center was dead, nothing, no system check, nothing, No radio, no horn, I would get the codes but I can't because my predator shows "no trouble codes found" now, I'm assuming that's due to the no message center. If anybody has an idea of what this could be and would like to help, I'd appreciate it otherwise I'll have to take it to the dealer. I was wondering does long tubes and OR-mids void my warranty? Not that it really matter now, LOL.

    oh yeah I checked all the fuses, battery, connections at the PCM , removed the battery cables and put them back on again, Could this be something to do with the O2 sensors?

    They will void ANY type of warr. on the exhaust.
    I would check under the car VERY closely looking for any wires or harnesses that didn't get tied back up during your header install.
    Even if all 4 02's went out it would not cause the car to do what your encountering..........
    I would also put a remote start button across the starter and see what happens. If you don't have one you can make one easily with 2 wires that have aligator clips on them to clamp onto the starter and then hold the 2 together to crank it. Yes it will spark in your hand but NO it won't shock you.
    Let me know.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    well I took the car to the dealership today, because I have to work for the next 6-7 days, So I'll see what they say, I actually never unplugged anything during the header install except the battery, which wouldn't cause this, and you say they'll void ONLY the EXHAUST warranty? Thanks.

    well they called today and said it is the ignition switch, and it's covered and they never said a word about the headers, I'll pick it up tomorrow.

    Cool glad to hear that!! Hopefully they won't notice the headers to put a note with your vin about warr. issues.

    They never said anything about the headers, I picked up the car today and the tech. asked me about the CEL and I told him not to worry about that, and he kind of laughed and said alright, kinda like he knew why it was on.
    The 3 codes I get are PO0030-PO0135-and PO0134 All O2 sensor codes, are all these common codes for long tube install and cat delete? The car runs great, I did notice the A/F ratio was 14.5:1 but it gets tuned monday. Thanks guys for your help.
