I have a 2010 Suzuki Kizashi, automatic, push button start. Car was running fine keyfob battery died. Replaced the battery car ran fine for like 3 days. Now the car will not get any power. Powerlocks will not work, no headlights, nothing. Battery is less than six months old, tested it just to make sure that wasn't the issue. Car will not jump start either. Any idea what could be causing the issue?

Does the car have no power at all (interior lights)? Can you open the doors with the fob? Must use metal key to enter car? Check fuses?

Along similar lines as the rodent damage inspection suggestion, these cars are getting to the age where electrical connection corrosion is going to start to become a gremlin. Grounds to be specific. If your in a wet, humid, freezing (salty) environment, you're going to have to start inspecting for this. Suzukis of old had issues with this...both of my Samurais specifically and notoriously. And, they are no where near as electronic dependent and power hungry as a Kizashi. Check all of your under-hood bolted ground connections. This includes your battery cables ends as well. Tight? in good condition? If there's a way for moisture to get in to the cables, the wire strands within can begin to corrode causing current flow problems.

As Kuro has insinuated, you'll need to take inventory of what has power and what does not. Trunk light? Stereo? Glove box light? Fuel filler door? Could be a BCM problem or power to it. That type of thing.
