    Are the cables tight and clean? What did you do to check the battery? possibly dead cell in battery.

    Battery is a brand new optima redtop. Checked the cables, at the battery and the fuse box. tested them with a Multimeter getting roughly 12. volts at the battery check the ground as well there, went over to the fuse block checked the postive connection there and the ground came up with 8. something volts.

    There are absolutely no lights, no radio, nothin on when in the car everything is dead. Except for the security system light which seems to start clicking and blinking very very fast when you open the door.

    ok so I disconnected the battery completly last night, and reconnected it this morning and now it starts? This is weird, do you all think it could be VATS or the BCM and if so which one?

    I have the same problems with a 2001 WS6. Ive checked everything. It seems to be hit or miss. My brother-in-law seems to think its a control module of some kind. Im not a very knowledgeable auto tech. I think I have a BCM. One way of getting around it is to turn the key all the way back and try to start again and I also, in extreme frustration hit the relay boxes.

    You can disable the VATS with a good tuner. That could be done in a worse case scenario to fix this problem, but you're better off finding out whats up with it.

    Its an M6. See now after I dsiconnected the battery the car starts and seems fine. However before I did that there was no juice not even enough for the remote to work. I tested the lines to the battery and the battery and I was getting voltage. The only thing that showed some juice was the security light constantly clicking and blinking. Any help is greatly appreciated.
