Default So ugh I have no power in my car, it wont start.

So im bringin my car back to stock today, was sailing through it. Took my utec out and my aftermarket deck, plugged in my stock CD deck, turned the car on...everything worked fine, yes! time to take out my turbo timer so I unplug everything on the TT, cut the 3 wires going to the ignition, and go to turn the car on and its totally dead...so i brought my friend over and we went crazy with the multimeter, and i cant get power ANYWHERE, there are no constansts wat so ever in my car right now and all the main fuses are perfectly fine. Any suggestions? cause i need to drive home tomorrow!
Thanks

Did you try to connect the Turbo timer back to see if you can start the car? If yes, and troubleshoot with Turbo timer

Put the turbo timer back together and see if it starts. If it does, then you know its the turbo timer. If not, it can be other problems.

Troubleshooting FTL.

you have no power anywhere but the main fuse is fine...? check all the fuses in both panels? find a known constant power (such as power window relay) and see if it has power?

off off chance, did you disconnect the battery while doing all this delicate electronic work and forget about it?

even if your ecu if fried, you should be getting power. factory alarm maybe?

are you getting no power at all? no lights, radio, etc
did you check to see if your battery is charged up, at least 12 volts?

the only thing I could think of without looking at the car is that you might have burnt out your ignition switch

you should still be getting power to the factory security system if the ignition was fried.

BTW have you checked the battery? Maybe it's defective.

the wiring should be pretty straight forward.
battery > main fuse panel > ignition system
if you're getting power at the battery, are you getting power anywhere at the main fuse panel (under hood) ?

check the wire that goes from battery to the main fuse... check both ends and see if it's loose...

ps... check polarity of the battery and the wires u've hooked up... maybe they're reversed...
