Well after a month of messing around with my car i finally got it to start :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

all it needed was 3 smartlock modules to get it running (original fried itself, 2nd one decided not to work for some unknown reason and the third...well shes a bloody ripper)

im so happy

i've checked that fuse every 10 minutes for the past month, and its fine, even checked it with a multimeter.

everything works, stereo, interior lights, all that crap it just wont fire, just sits there cranking away till the battery dies.

and my battery is good.

You need to go through the learn procedure after replacing the smartlock. Without that you need to leave the ignition on for 30 minutes before it will start.
Strange that it cranks unless smartlock is bypassed or faulty.
