Default Please I Need Help...:(

im going crazy trying to figure out whats wrong with my bugeye.

specs: 2.0L stock, stage 2, XPT tune, TBE, UP, K&N filter, 255lph, VF39, 565cc injectors..

it was tuned 2 weeks ago and runs smoothly and holds boost.this morning i used the car to go to work and ran snoothly.
now after getting off work, the car started then died after 10 secs.
i tried to start it again but the nothing.

here are my observations:

fuel pump is running everytime i put the key on "ON" position.
the car cranks but doesnt turn over.
the cluster doesnt show any CEL, oil light, hand brake light etc... only the door jam and mileage are on.

i tried jump starting it using a jump cable but nothing.
now im clueless on whats wrong with the car...please help

I agree sounds like a grounding problem OR an immobilizer problem, check your maf wiring make sure its not grounding out some where, also check your Main relay fuse, and all fuses in the car make sure there not blown. It damn sure isnt spark plugs, trust me you would have had warning sights and a "Rich" situation rarely "drowns" spark plugs to where the car wont even start.

Ok my friend and i narrowed it down.
We used a power probe between the igniton switch to the fuse box under the dash and eveything works.
But it only works becuse of the power probe putting power to the ignition fuse.. So im guessing it somewhere in between the ignition switch and the ignition key... Is there another relay in between those 2?
Does soemone knows or have a wiring diagram on that fuse box?
Please lmk

Thank you
