car starts and drives fine.
no gauges (tach and mph work)
no lower gauges on console
no ac compressor, fan works
windows will not move
key fob does not work, lock/ unlock button in car works
warning lights on: battery. brake, ALB, traction control
no radio
I put in new battery, nothing changed
I checked ground connections
I have good voltage on both sides of the 125 amp fuse

bdl2 ... please tell us you didn't buy it like that. Did you test drive it ???

Hopefully somebody will throw you a "lifejacket" shortly. Hang in there, I'm sure help is on the way !!!

Welcome
While you are waiting for responses you might post a bit about yourself in a separate thread Here in the New Members section.

I would make sure that all the bolts in the fuse blocks, under hood and behind the waterfall. are snug. These hold the plugs into the back side of the blocks. Do not really torque on them in case something is not aligned properly but they should not be loose to allow the plugs to back out.
I am sure others will chime in here. Good Luck.

I will move this to Technical Forum after a day so if it is not here you can look for it there. I will wait so you do not have trouble getting back here to read this.

bdl2, in my concern for your "gremlins" I forgot to :00000732: you to our SSRfanatic Family ... that's what I meant when I said "I'm sure help is on the way"

Anyway again :00000732: to the SSR Nation !!! Like BlueStreak said, take time to tell us about yourself and where you live.

Welcome to the club.
What if anything is displayed on DIC (driver information system)
I would guess you have a module or possible class 2 serial data problem. 05 and06 utilize CAN network for ECM and TCM (if automatic transmission).
Do you access to a scanner (NOT a code reader)?
If yes do an all module scan for codes
Do you own, can you use a voltmeter?
If yes I can give you a quick way to see if class 2 network is up and running.

In dic the normal things except things like oil change read 0
automatic trans.
I only have a code reader, no scanner
yes I have and can use a volt meter
thanks for the help autoprof
really do not want to bring it to the dealer

As requested, about myself
live in royal palm beach FL.
this is my wife's daily driver
I bought it from a friend in 2006 with 3000 miles
My wife says she will never sell it
In the last year or so I have done a lot of work
rebuilt brake controller
rebuild all hydraulic rams for top
new water pump with all hoses and belts
new fuse bock by engine
front right wheel bearing

Thanks for everyone's help Brad

Until I go back to school (office) tomorrow
Go ahead and see if your code scanner can get any codes, specifically from BCM.
Not sure if you scanner is capable.
Try to extract codes from whatever is possible. Any U codes will confirm my suspicion. But realize the modules that communicate the U codes are the trying to tell you another one is not working.

bdl2, Don't forget what "BlueStreak" said in post #2. Look in the "Technical Forum" after a day so.-----Welcome from Forney Texas!!! You will discover that you have found the BEST FORUM ever! -----Consider going to "Tools" in the red banner, click on "User CP" go to "Your Profile" then click "Edit Your Details". Then, whenever you "post" something, it will show in the left column under your name, like the rest of us, and we will know where you are and what you drive. Then if you have a problem, someone close by might be able to help out.

Dicktator Clearwater here - 125 amp fuse, engine fuse box, feeds rear fuse box behind passengers seat.

Rear fuse box runs all the gremlins you are having trouble with.

When I get back from Calif. I will put together a Florida Chapter Hands on Tech Day.

Look under Tech Disscusions - How to Library.

Great thought, this would kill BCM and a few other modules.

In the original post he said:

"I have good voltage on both sides of the 125 amp fuse"

Even so, I personally would replace the 125A fuse as his symptoms are so wide spread.

You’ve just been thrown a life preserver bd12. Don’t let it get away.

Even with a blown 125 Amp fuse, you will read voltage to ground on both sides of the fuse.
Replace the 125 Amp fuse.
Ed - this is new to me please help me understand
I suppose if this type of fuse can fail without creating an complete open circuit, but fails so that it is high resistance and circuit was tested with key off this would be true. There would be no current flow so the high resistance in the fuse would not drop any voltage. Therefore you would read source voltage on both sides of fuse.
What about measuring voltage to ground with key turned on?
What about testing with a test light on both sides of fuse or removing the fuse and checking resistance?

no codes found
I pulled the 125 amp fuse, it is good.
thanks

how do I check the rear fuse panel?

Todays Digital Volt-Ohm-Meters have a very very high input impedance. (Meg Ohm's)
They will read voltage that the old style VOM's will not read.
The voltage comes from modules and circuitry that are powered from the Underhood Fuse Box and tie into some Rear Fuse Box modules & circuitry.
I have read voltage on both sides of two blown 125 Amp fuses.
