Went out to the car got in, turned the key and all accessories lights came on for a split second. then nothing. No click, no lights and no start.
I just put in new ignition coils. They Are Accel coils(I've heard horror stories) but i would thinks the lights would work if the coil was bad right? I'm thinking battery... how about you guys?

I'm thinking that an electrical failure of that scale is just a bit too coincidental with the first power-on after replacement of electrical parts.

Have you considered that you may have hooked up something incorrectly, or broken one or more other connections in the process of replacing your coil?

Double-check that you did indeed connect the new ignition coil properly, then check every possible wiring connector near the area you were working in, as well as the fuseable links over near C500.

O no, I didnt just put in new coils. Sorry for being unclear. They are newer I guess. I have driven the car many times with new coils. Drove home from work, went to sleep, woke up and car wont start.

Check your battery first, then look for any loose wiring, fuses.

I too would check the battery!

My car one time did the same think. I parked it came out from the store hit the key it turned over just briefly (like half a rotation and everything went dead)! It never did this before and I didn't mess with the battery prior to this hapening!

Popped the engine compartment lid wiggled the battery wires and noticed the trunk lightr came on when I did this. I tightened the battery cables (the negative was only slightly loose) got in the car and it cranked over like normal and fired up!

I would check this first. Even if you didn't remove the battery cables for any reason this still may be the cause....sometimes they loosen! Also check all fuses and check the condition of the battery cables (look for wear or fraying!

Good Luck!
