So I just purchased a new car because my celiac died. Can't figure out what is wrong with it. The windows and sun roof are open however. I'd like to get them closed but none of the electronics on the car are wroking. Does anyone know of a way to manually get these things closed?

Thanks

Wait so your car went is in a black out state.

Heres were ill start for a solution:
Battery (double check even if its new)
Battery cable to and from starter.
ignition relay switch
Basically all wiring to and from the starter
All grounds
And the starter itself

it is true that you might have some blown fuses, but fuses hardly ever blow without a reasonable cause, so you probably have some shorts somewhere, possibly some frayed wires. What kinda car is it?

disconnect your alternator wires, if the alt is bad it will blow everything. and power wont come back until you unhook it. ask me how i know. that or your battery terminals. I would have a multimeter out and working on finding some volts quick!
