I hadnt started my GXL in about a week, because I'd been working on it. I went to start it after finishing up working today, and there was nothing. Lights work, but when the key is turned, there's nothing inside the cabin as well. No idiot/cluster lights. I looked at the fuse block under the hood, and the 80A main looks like it's blown, but then again, I've never looked at it before. Obviously, all the other ones look OK because the wire strip is intact, but the 80A main has a gap. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be like that because of the amperage, or if it's blown.

if you still have problems after changing the fuse, get back with us and we will see what else could be wrong.

yeah, i just replaced a couple of fuses, it was definitely blown. Now on to the next problem: leaky injector o-rings!
