Default 03 GT Cruiser wont stay running.

Well. This morning as I was coming to work the car started "Dinging" and all the gear select lights light up, the spedo, tach and temp gauge just dropped as if car was off. it stated flashing "No Bus" with check engine, oil pressure, and abs light lit up.

I tried the key dance and Nothing all I get is "--------". no codes or anything.

Went out at lunch and car starts, but just stalls out and now it will do NOTHING... Turn the key and nothing happens exept it light up the dash.

PLEASE HELP. got to leave work in and hr and 15 minutes. would like to have car running since I'm off tomorow.

In the Power Distribution Center (fuse box) that's in the engine compartment, the No#17 fuse is the IOD (Ignition Off Draw) fuse. It's 15 amp. That should be the cause of the "No Bus" message. Hopefully it will cure all your problems. Please let me know.

Thanks for the help. Looks like my stereo Was to blame. I went out with my spare key, stock PCM, hand full of fuzes and my trusty tool kit. I tried the spare first, nothing. Plugged the stock PCM in (not installed, just plugged it in) and still no go. Figured what the heck. Unplugged stereo and it cranked right up. So I think something came undone (guessing not a strong enough ground maybe?) I'll be going through the whole wiring harnes of the stereo when I get up tomorrow.
