That sux man.

When I start mine, and the engine's cold, it will cut off and I have to start it again. When I give it a little gas when I start it up, it wont cut off.....I hope it wont lead to what you have.

I think its your battery. It's probably weak. On my explorer, all the stuff worked and lights lite up, but there was just not enough power to start the car. Hook it up with another car to jump start it and see if the alternator is able to charge up your battery or not. If not its time for a new battery, which i think is covered under warrenty.

I agree. I had the same thing happen to me this weekend. I haven't driven my car for over 3 weeks and my battery was week. I had to jump it and it's fine now. All lights lit up, but not enough to start.
