Car is off with key out of ignition, but all dash lights including all warning lights stay on. And there is a sound from the engine compartment like some kind of auxillary motor might be running. But I just drove for an hour and it will not start. Nothing.

did the car get washed or rained on before this happened?

can you open the engine hood and check to see if the fuse box cover on the drivers side was installed correctly?

also check for traces of water on the fuse box and fuses. that is what sounds like happened to me, if not we can continue to see what may have happened. Lou P
