94 sho wont start

I have a 94 taurus sho. It started fine this morning but the radio would not work. It said call on it and i believe it had something to do with the old carphone that was installed. I turned the car off in hopes to reset the radio but then it would not start again. When i turn the key forward i get a lot of static through the speakers and the engine wont turn over at all. The theft light on the dash also blinks when i turn the key forward and i can hear clicking coming from the dash. I have no idea whats goin on so any help would be appreciated thank you

Re: 94 sho wont start

No I havent. I will try later today. The car starting acting even crazier now however. When i try to lock the doors they just keep locking real fast until i stick the key in. When i push the horn, theres no sound but the doors lock and i can hear a very fast clicking from inside the dash. I also heard a growling from inside the dash when i trie rolling my windows up. No shit it kinda scared me.. It really sounded like a tiger or lion was inside my dashboard.

Re: 94 sho wont start

Would a low battery or bad connects really cause all those weird symptoms?
