Default Pt just won't start

I have a 04 2.4 turbo and came home with no problems, couple hrs later went to run off and nothing when I turn the key. Lights interior and exterior go on, dash, alarm, horn all work. not even a click! I dropped a starter in and charged the bat. nothing! checked the fuses behind bat, switched them around in hopes it would click even....nothing. i can't tell on the square black fuses if there good or bad. plus it was a sunday night and nothing open. I'm stumped

Your talking about #1(30Amp-Pink)& #3(40Amp-Green) in the PDC(under-hood).......Visibly they could look OK,if you have replacements you can try them;Otherwise the way to check is to check for continuity with a multi-meter.(not everybody has a M/M)
