04 Xterra problem - January 24, 2010, 11:00 PM

When i was leaving work today my truck would not start. I unlocked it with the remote as normal got in and went to start it up. As soon as i turned the key everything went off, all the lights etc. So i turn the key to the off position and pull the key out and the dome lights are dim( like the battery is dead) but they are flashing and there is a ticking coming from the under the steering wheel but its in a pattern with the lights. Something in the engine bay might be clicking too, maybe the horn. Tried to jump it, thinking the battery was dead, but it was fine. also disconnected the battery trying to reset everything but that did nothing. Im thinking mabye a problem with the security system but i have no idea. Anyone have any thoughts? never had a problem with it before this.

Alarm have a Ignition/Starter Kill feature? I am half asleep right now but thinking something set off your alarm and activated that feature. Sometimes car alarms "brains" go bad after a period of a couple of years which maybe the case. Happened to me. "Brain" wasn't under warranty anymore and had to but a new one.

You could try pulling the fuse to the alarm and see if that will let you start it.
