4G63 Doesn't Start

As I was driving on the highway after a race meet in my area, my car suddenly turned off. I pulled over to the emergency lane and it wouldn't turn back on. The only thing that worked was my headlights and hazard lights. The windows wouldn't go up, radio didn't turn on, wipers didn't work, none of my gauges were on.

I would turn the key and it wouldn't even make a single noise. Verdict, towed to a friends house. Has anyone had this problem before? Could it be my starter?

The starter wouldn't make a car suddenly die and wouldn't affect the functions of your windows or radio. The starter is just that, it is there to start the car and that is it.

If your headlights work, start checking fuses as GSX said.

yea i really couldnt check the big fuses too well, lacking light source... but def like i said it sounded more like a fuse issue because there werent any clicking or anything.. at first i thought is was th starter because there wasnt any cranking or sounds at all but once we noticed the windows werent going up.. i figured it was a fuse.. Yo P im out of work at 10 so ill see what we can do...

Alright. I'm jumping out of here around 945ish to catch that Metro North in the mean time!

Alright. I bought a few 30A fuses, each one of them blew. I used the fuses for the IGN SW MOTEUR slot and they all burnt.

Does this mean I have a short? Where would I start looking?

If this is the case, should I bring it to a mechanic. I don't know CRAP about electrical and wiring.
