Alright, so I installed my new flex innovations grounding kit today. Start up my car and immediately within 5 seconds it powers down.

Now when I plug the key in or try anything it does nothing. Battery reads a solid 12v. I'm a bit worried i've shorted/fried the computer. No fuses blown from the few that I checked.

Anyone had a similar problem or could point me in the right direction to diagnose the problem?

Double check all of the connections and make sure everything is bolted back properly. If its still the same way try removing the grounding kit and see if the car starts back up properly. Hopefully you didn't fried anything. :(

Well, turns out it was the battery. It was pulling about half the amps it should have... A new one fixed it right up.
