I have a 2000 GAGT it started as I went to start my car and heard a screaching noise and then nothing turn the key to run and u nothing happens and it blew the main Ignition fuse(40amp) under the hood tried more fuses and they blew too.... starter was bad I replaced it today and same thing the starter spun and the fuse blew and now I checked wires under the hood and behind the dash at the Ignition Switch and they are fine no aparent shorts. Now I'm back to nothing and it isnt blowing fuses anymore u just turn the key to run and the car does nothing at all.

Anyone Know what the hell's goin on with the car?

remote wire to the starter was shorted out and eventually burnt all the way thru
