Unhappy No Crank No Start

I have a 1996 328I Convertible I was driving this morning went over a bump the A/C fan went off, A/C module lights stuk in position stayed on, and the On Board Computer Turned off. When I got to work I turned the car off and now it won't restart. I get all the lights, (no OBC or A/C lights) headlights bright, NO CRANK, NO CLICK, NO START. I just bought the car yesterday and its started 5 times just fine, now WTF? I am stuck at work please help!!!

Oh and I could not compression start this 5 speed, I may not have been rolling fast enough.

It does not have an alarm that I know of just keyless entry

Theories: I dont have 9.6 volts so the computer wont come on?
It has a kill switch? but where?
I have no owners manual so I have no relay map.

Questions: Anyone have a map of the relay's?
Anyone know where the "other" fuse box(s) are?
Anyone know where a kill reset switch is?

Please help
Chris
