Car won't start

I know there's a forum for this but there are only 4 people viewing there, and I have a major problemo.

Car won't start - Predator
Without going into details as to why, I unplugged a Predator from my vehicle without getting the "ok" from the unit. Now my car won't start. I plugged it back in... it said it had reset and was ok to unplug... my car still won't start. Ideas?

Is the car turning over or dead altogether?

It's not dead, as in dead battery dead. The gauge is reading 12v. It won't crank at all. Nada.

try unplugging the cable going into the computer next to the relay box in the engine bay for a few minutes, then plug it back in and try starting it. Saw my tuner do this when something happened the first time my car was on the dyno. Said he could fix it from the computer but that was a hell of lot easier. it worked, but that might have been something else...worth a try.

Disconnect the battery for awhile. Let everything reset itself.
