    UPDATE.

    They have no idea what was the cause of the original problem but looks like my father blew out all the fuses and the warranty won't cover it.

    I was inside my car looking at the manual and he was hooking up the jumper cables and put the negative on a metal plate under the hood instead of on the battery itself because it just needed to be "grounded" and it appears it arced and blew out everything.

    Great.So he broke my car twice.

    Best case scenario, you replace all the fuses and everything goes back to normal. Relatively cheap and shouldn't take too long.

    Worst case is you replace everything and spend the rest of the cars life chasing down electrical gremlins.

    Just three fuses blown. Two cheap ones and one more expensive one. Just charged me for the expensive fuse and a 1/2 hour of labor. $80.

    They could not figure out the cause of the original problem. Battery diagnostics are fine and it's starting easily now.

    Only thing he can think of is the fuses being blown on their own but he can't report it that way because we tried to jump it. If it happens again he said don't jump it just tow it here and we'll check the fuses first.

    You probably had it in drive (or not all the way in park) the first time you tried to start it and then your dad came in and Leroy-Jenkins'ed it into a real problem.
