Please Help Car Won't Start

Hey guys I was just driving my viggen home when my radio shut off and dash lights went out... no blinkers etc, they are working fine outside just don't show on the dash. I got it into my garage and shut the car off and took the key out, the radiator fan is now running intermittently and the interior lights, heated seats, fogs buttons, and ring around the power outlet, are staying lit up as if i still have my lights on. I tried to start her back up and it cranks but no fire?

figures the day before i go to stage 3.

any insight is greatly appreciated.
thanks
-andy

Oh wow, they weren't kidding...I'm amazed by the grape vine that is, the internetz.

I just have to say something...

I know exactly why the car won't start. It's embarrassed of its appearance.

So,
Step 1: remove vinyl.
Step 2, completely wash, detail, wax exterior.
Step 3. Repeat step 2... 4 more times.
Step 4, insert key into ignition.
Step 5, smile at your accomplishments; a beautiful, classy, steel grey viggen that runs, to boot!


Gaspare... what have we done...?

lol. In all honesty Andy, I'm just giving you a hard time... Not my style, but to each their own.
I hope you're enjoying the car and that it's treating you well otherwise.
