Hey guys, I am in urgent need of some help, I went thru the car wash today, and afterwards I drove out of it, parked the car, turned it off, and now it won't crank, I checked the wiring, relay and fuse, and they are fine, the smart lock light is flashing only when car is turned off, when key is in the run position, there is just a (!) Lit up. Any ideas?

Maybe try hitting the BCM - ie. thump the panel near your left knee while turning the key.

Have you checked the neutral start safety switch on the passenger side of gearbox( try starting the car in neutrel instead of park and spray out the plug with wd40). These get wet and sometimes s**t themselves...isolates the starter motor relay..

Hey guys, got it running again, turned out to be the circuit board at the end of the ignition barrel had oxidized so much that the start position couldnt engage properly
