URGENT! car won't start after 2000 miles of lift

i put a skyjacker 4 in lift professionally installed

after 1000 miles it wouldn't start one time but i just wait a couple minutes and played around with it and fixed it.

at 1750 i had to open and close all the doors in order for the lights to go on, i believe when i was opening and closing doors it was putting off a sensor and thats how i got to start my car. also at around this milage ABS, TRACTION CONTROL AND BRAKES light were going on in my dashboard.

2000 miles in i woke up this morning and all my tricks won't work.

I'm getting it towed to the dealer for free.

any possibility any of you know what it could be?

thanks in advance

I would say 2000 miles of lift the lack of oxygen would prevent the car from starting.

I am betting on a loose batter connection or maybe a short.

Yup... seen it happen lots o' times.

...And check on the loose batter. Batter splatter will damage your paint

Seriously, would have nothing to do with the lift. Unless it was caused by them loosening a connection somewhere... like say the fuse panel / ECM box in front of the battery tray... because they were trying to get at the top of the front passenger side shock (ask me how I know.... ) And intermittently you had no power at all. Just sayin'

Otherwise, nothing to do with the lift
