The baja wont start.
The key's blow the ignition fuse
when I go direct on the starter it spins but wont engage.

the other night it started right away but then died and nothing would start.
the power on the radio flashed dimly every time I tried the ignition. Nothing else.

Check the smaller wire coming off the positive side of the battery to make sure it's still connected. If it brakes loose it kills the ignition. Blowing fuses isn't good and maybe something is pinched? You could also have a bad ground strap or connection.

If the fuse is blowing you need to find the wire on that circuit that is shorted to ground.

oddly enough it just needed a new alternator.
The generator and the sub/amp setup just wasn't working.

and the starter had a gear out.
