Started last week after a small drive. I went to turn on the vehicle and the only thing lit up on the dash was the door ajar light. headlights and other accec. wouldn't work. After I disconnected the battery for a minute and reconnected it everything started working again.. Just this morning it started happening again.

I'm wondering if anyone is having this same issue so I can pin point an area to start.
The first time it happened I was able to use the remote to unlock the doors. This time
I had to manually use the key to unlock the doors.

Are the headlights dimming when you try to start the engine? Hows the connections on the battery? The key light is not flashing fast in the dash when trying to start...

It happens at random. The vehicle is a daily driver. The 2 times the incident happened The remote unlocked the doors. But when I went to start the car nothing comes on from the dash, including the headlights. But when I disconnect the battery for a minute and reconnect it, everything works fine.

I am starting to think it might be the Anti theft system.
