Then while rolling it out of the driveway to tow it, it came back to life. I have a bad ground, faulty wiring, key wasnt recognized or something is creating too much draw on the battery. Had a weird combination of lights when i got in the car and the radio started falshing on and off and then it went dead, no clicking no lights no response. Original owner siad the power pulley kit might no be spinning hte same as the stock and not charging the battery. Anyone have a no start situation like this before? My BRAKE, ABS, TRACTION CONTROl and TIRE PRESSURE lights were on and when i revved the car up past 1500RPM they all went off and came back on when the car came back down to idle. Then it died. I am running some kind of Duralast battery, but the original owner has some huge amp wired in with a bunch of wiring harnesses everywhere.
Damn your ride is possessed!!

Tell me about it! Has to be battery/ground related becuse when it came back to life everything was reset, clock, radio, trip. And the only way to do that is by disconnecting the battery right?

Asbjorn custom ported their EGS software over to my car, and it is amazing. And officially un-bricked. ESS was awesome to deal with, and their support was outstanding.

I can stop driving the FX, and once more have that non-suv feel.

Ordered new fuel pump and relay from BMA. $131 shipped. Fuel filter is brand new as of Sunday. Hopefully it and my new water pump will be here on Friday so I can actually drive it again.
