    I was just driving back from getting my girlfriend from work and my radio shut off, then my clock on my dash shut off, then my gauge light shut off...and as I was pulling in my driveway...the car just died, shut off, kaput! WTF! It's not throwing any codes, the car won't turn over, it just clicks when I turn the key...it's acting like I have a dead battery...but how did it start the car this morning @-40C and then start the car when I went to get the girlfriend 10minutes before it died!?!?!

    HELP!!!!

    check your main relay. I think its under the dash on the left side of the steering column. You might need a new one.
