    check your main relay..
    same thing happend to mine. i guess they commonly go out.

    its a little box lookin thing under the dash on the driver side, above the hood release latch. it comes out with a 10 or 12 mil socket and a bit of prying..

    there is a way to test it, but what i did, is just pulled the cover off and checked all the solder points to be sure they werent dry or cracked.. if htey are, re-solder 'em and that should fix it.. if it doesnt.. it doesnt hurt any lol
