ok, was messing with the settings on my stereo(not standard) and then turned it off and then back on pretty fast. then all of a sudden there is a "ticking" noises and pulsing of the power (i think all power...all lights were "ticking") and the stereo wouldnt work. so naturally i freak out..but finally upon checking a few things and disconecting the amp the ticking has stopped. so what the hell is now wrong with the amp? i tried to reconect it and it shorts out the ignition...so i have left that disconnected for now.
BUT... now i can turn the ignition on, everything works fine..but as soon as i try and start the car its like the ignition just shorts. back onto ACC and everything is fine. now i seriously doubt there is a fault with the battery and it has always turned pover perfectly. just when i turn the key it doent even try and turn.. i thought maybe somethign wrong with the imobiliser..but its factory and the key has a transponder so i have no idea. i will call holden asap...but they are usually about as smart as sack of wet rags.
