While sitting at an intersection, waiting for the light to change green, I heard three short "dings" come from the speakers, similar to those generic "you've forgotten your keys and the door is open, dummy" beeps that cars make. Then my engine died on me.

Now, turning the key in the ignition switch does nothing. No turnover, no guage lights or reactions, no radio starting, nothing at all.

Anything that you could turn on without having the key in the ignition, such as the interior lights, the exterior lights, etc, works fine. However, the things that need the key in and on to work, won't, such as the radio, or the rear deck release remote switch.

Any troubleshooting pointers or general suggestions?
