was driving on freeway. car just died. headlights work, but car won't start. checked the battery, starter, all fuses, everything is fine. when I turn the key nothing lights up on the dash. dash lights work when I turn on the headlights. I have no warning lights or dash lights when I turn on the key. no radio or accessories. can't figure out what happened. can you help me?
