Default Help i am stranded

I started my 2007 2.5i automatic ok and when I put it in reverse the car stalled. Now when I turn the key to start it makes no noise at all and does nothing. When I turn the key to on I don't here the solenoids clicking. I do hear the fuel pump start. I used a screw driver to disengage the shift lock and went down to first and back to park still won't start. Won't start in neutral either. Pulled battery cable and reinstalled and same problem? What can I do? What is the part that makes the clicking noises usually before the car starts? I have limited hand tools and sockets but no multimeter. Please help

Have you tried getting a jump start from a friend's car? It sounds like your battery is dead.

Checking your wiring is always a good place to start until someone can offically diagnose your problem. Even if you dont have a mmeter you can visually inspect.

Found blown 15amp fuse under dash marked ignition. Replaced and car started. Very strange. Has anyone blown this fuse before?

Has to be a harness short, or a ground strap has come loose.

When I got home I was able to reverse into my garage. Does anyone know of what switches are used when the auto tranny goes into reverse? I'm wondering if there is a shorted wire on the side of the tranny or something I'm throwing a CEL as well. I will pull the code but last code I threw was some generic AT code.

An electrical schematic of the AT would be awesome if anyone has access to it.

First check the fuses. I could be the Safely Neutral Sensor (If this sensor is bad, the car would not start in any gear. Neutral, reverse, drive or park.) I had this go bad on me and the car would not start at all but all the electrical would work.

I'm not familiar with the automatic transmission as all my cars are manual. But if it's the type of automatic transmission that uses a transmission control module and a little electric motor to switch gears, i would probably start there.

You might have a melted relay, this would cause a short, or if the TCM uses high side circuit board drivers, these are prone to shorting as well and would be a short on a circuit board.

First i would pull the TCM and look at any related relays first. Smell each one and visually inspect to see if they work. You can also check each relay with a multimeter to see if they are shorted while NC(normally closed). Sometimes you can smell if one has burned through the plastic housing.

If your transmission is mechanically fuxored inside, the little electric motor may also be maxed out and blow the fuse. (when an electric actuator or motor is stopped or reaches end of stroke, the current will go very high and blow fuses).

Yes I hear on this car it is the reverse light switch as well.
