Help!!

I put my water/meth back on today. Took it out for a test drive. Ran great. Pulled off the road and was waiting for traffic to clear, when it just shut off. Like I turned the key off. I cranked it over and it started up but then died again. Now it wont turn over at all. batteries are good. I'm not getting any fuel pressure on my gauge, and the injectors aren't buzzing. WTF?!

anything you tapped into that would be shorting the PCM??

From what I could tell, NO. It is dark and I was on the side of a dirt road with 30mph wind. I'll go over all of my work in the morning.

k........here is how i would start...check anything you did twice....

tapp on the FICM with something hard....dont dent the case but rap on it a bit and see if it all comes back....

when the injectors wont buzz.....its usually a harness problem or a ficm problem...could be related to what you did.....might not be. Ive had one bad harness and one bad FICM in the last two weeks...

Could it have anything to do with my ignition switch? Also, my headlights come on, but no dash or gauge lighting, or tail lights.
