car won't do nothing

today everything on the car stopped working. it happened this morning, I started the car and then I had to come back to my house. I turned off the car and then when I tried to start it again it just died right after I turned the key.
I really don't think it's the battery, a battery doesn't dies that fast. Not even the radio on the car works. Simply I dont have any power on the car.

Checked the fuses but the manual only shows me the diagram of the smaller fuses, they were ok.

Is there some fuse that could make everything in the car stop working or I could be looking at a computer issue??

thanks in advance

Check your positive battery terminal, and ground wire.

Check the main power coupler on the fire wall in the false battery tray under the hood.

checked it today with a voltimeter it reads just fine. Also went through all the fuses, none were blown.

Is there something more more I can check or I should just take it to a mechanic to get it scanned??

finally found that the battery just gave up. Checked it again with a better voltimeter and the numbers were way low so I replaced it and the car started right up. It was weird how it went bad, one moment the car started just fine and the next time it was dead.


Starmavin, and the other guys, thanks for everything.
