No power anywhere! Good battery

Ive been driving my 2008 automatic with no issues since getting the transmission computer replaced. Yesterday I went to start the car after being in a store for 10 minutes. No lights, no accessories, no start, nothing. Wouldn’t even let the key back out.

I have checked voltage at the battery and at the lug on the fuse box. Both fine. The hazards will not work, the trunk release will not work. I hadn’t to use the release to get the key out.

What could cause this? Is there a master fuse that I’m not aware of?

2006 2.4L
Water damaged from an insurance sale.

If there is a master fuse I haven't seen or heard of it, so probably not.

Where did you reference 0V for your voltage checks? If you used the battery it could be a ground problem. Be sure to check voltage to the frame.

Nearly everything operates under control of the BCM, and it sits low in the car so could have been damaged in the flood. It may also shut down if one of the LANs is disconnected.

If the main ground is good I would check voltages at some of the "always hot" fuses to find out where there is and isn't power.
I would direct you to them but do not have a manual handy. I will tonight if someone doesn't beat me to it.

Agree with John if this is a flood car you could have corrosion on a connector that has taken some time to affect the electrical system especially if it was salt water .

There are a number of BCM fuses that can act like 'master' fuses. Check the big square fuses (#'s 4, 5 & 7) in the underhood fuse block in the row at the end nearest the fender.

Another possibility is BCM fuse 26, labeled DR LCK. It appears to power the BCM itself in addition to the door locks.
That one and UFB fuse 7 (BCM) look to be the only ones that would kill everything by themselves.
With any other fuses it looks like something would still work, unless several blew at one time.

I believe OP was referring to the transmission control module (TCM). On the autos, it's a separate module sandwiched in next to the ECM, IIRC.
