Check the + battery cable that goes to the maxifuse box. It'* right on top in the middle. Could be corroded.

ok here is the deal i went to the car and it started right up so i wasted no time and drove it home and saved myself * tow and the car duplicated the problem right away by dieing in my driveway. so i get it here and checked the wire danthurs said very little if any corrosion i also checked out the maxi fuse holders as well as the relays under it and nothing. so i thought hmmmm what about the ground bus? so i removed the floor mat and the carpet felt wet and it had rained heavily earlier in the day. so i pulled the carpet back and found water sitting where the ebrake cable goes thru and the general area and we know the ground bus is taped there. so i had tried the car several times while farting around with the cables at the maxi fuse and got nothing. no sooner i un-tape the ground bus and wiggle it around i tried the car and bam it starts and the windows and door locks work. so i will be cleaning the bus but now i wonder where the water is coming in???????????????????

well boys and girls i think this was another case of corrosion in the ground bus.i had what later found thru the forums the classic fuel dieing while driving no windows or power door locks. so i cleaned and sanded the bus and coated all of it with die-electric grease and postioned it higher so water cant get to it. I LOVE THIS FORUM!!!
