2000 VT Commodore Olympic Edition
Hi guys
Need some urgent help/advice
I was driving home from work today and all of a sudden my VT just cuts out on victoria road(main road in Sydney)
Ii got the car off the road with the help of some of the boys in blue.
Anyway I went to start the car and I noticed the dash now reads error.
I have power to all lights windows locks and cluster.
When I try to switch the car on it doesn't crank at all.
I had nrma test the battery and terminals and everything is fine.
After a lot of cursing and a few hours of waiting I decided to work 3km home and my car is now parked on a random back street.
Please I need my car for work so any help or advice would be great.
Do I need to tow it or is it something simple I can do where the car is now.

Thanks so much

Going to guess a BCM/PIM issue, but you'll need to get it scanned to know for sure. I'm guessing your an NRMA member, if so they will tow you 25km for free - plenty to get you to Suttons at chullora. Let us know how you get on and good luck.

You can always try disconnecting the battery for half an hour first, sometimes this helps clear gremlins out.

Good luck and don't leave it there too long or you'll need more than a tow.
