Hi there.You might have accidentally triggered the anti-theft system. If so, using the original key to unlock the doors and turn the ignition should disarm it so the engine will be allowed to start.Another possibility is that you unplugged something (I don't know what you mean by "multifunction fuse box/BCM/ECU") and didn't plug it back in correctly.When you say it won't start, does that mean the starter cranks the engine but the engine won't start and run?
