1997 Suzuki Carry Truck

Battery is good, no power from battery to anything else and of course will not start either. Thinking we have a bad connection or blown fuse we cannot find. We need a book to research the problemk, an owners manual or parts english. Any ideas?

After having had to jump start the battery, the camera and radio don't work. How do you reset it or check to see if something got disconnected when jumped.?

Normally jump starting doesn't involve disconnecting anything. You put the leads from a good battery onto the terminals of the bad battery and start the vehicle. I hope you didn't put the good battery on, start the vehicle and remove the battery with the engine still running and connect the old one? That is a recipe to cause electrical damage as the charge from the alternator has nowhere to dissipate its excess amps.

Check your fuses.

I have a 92 Chevy Camaro the battery is brand new but I have no power at all. I have inspected all power wires from front bumper to fire wall and no bad wires, why do I not have any power whatsoever?

If there is NO power to ANYTHING, suspect a cable issue/connection. If there is some power to some accessories, possible fuse link blown at starter area. You may need to do a voltage drop test to determine the source of the problem on the battery cables

2008 Hyundai Sonata was running great turned it off now there is no power at all no lights or anything is there more than one main fuse

First thing to check is the battery connections....make sure they are clean and tight. Try jump starting the car from a known good battery or another running car...not likely anything serious if it was running fine until you turned it off. If the alternator is bad and it killed the battery, you may have to let it charge for a while when jumping it.

My 96geo metro has no elect power

do you have a voltmeter, any?
if you do, this is childs play, but not, near impossible to see electrons
with eye balls. we can see atoms, but not electrons, probably never.
Dr.Tyson...... quote.
but back to earth, this is easy , the FSM cover this, as does
but i bet $15 for the online is over budget?
my guess, is not have any elect. power really means you cant
CRANK the engine over?
or it cranks or will not start.
no car cranks with out a starter, cept my M/T i can push start
it and gravity start mine.
but my guess 2 is yours is A/T tranny.
so must crank.

why not post like this.
i get in car, i turn on head lights, they are dead. (dead battery or fuse blown) no, my head lights work. (this is always test 1)
then i turn the key on, and the dash idiot lamps all glow. (normal)
if not the fuses are blown or the battery is dead.
a good battery reads (any voltmeter even walfart $10 meter)
12.6vdc rested.
ok my dash glows. and more important the EFI CEL lamp
this lamp is called many thing, MIL, SES or check engine light
if it dont glow, then the Fuser to the EFI are in fact blown.
or the lamp is bad.
if in usa, you can plug any OBD2 scan tool into the near knees DLC port and it will connect, key on, if not the fuses are BLOWN.
you push the scan button and get what codes? DTC errors.
report them.
then crank for 5 seconds (im assuming it can) and you get what DTC.

if car will not crank
then jumper start crank it. does it?
yes, then the battery was dead.
if battery dead, charge it , does it crank now?
if battery discharges parked this is called parasitic drain.
if starter is dead , with jumper cables that is bad starter or key line.

we can do this 1 step at a time
but you never posted the symptoms.

  1. head lamps dead.
  2. dash dead.
  3. starter dead (will not crank)
  4. all above good , engine will not start.

in that order.

Fuse diagram

most of the time its color is yellow. If your radio used to keep its memory, but suddenly failed to do so, the most common cause would be, surprise, your starter. Your starter is starting to wear out, and it is drawing the max amps now from your battery and anything else it can pull a few amps from, sucking your radio's memory. Check your settings before starting your car. Then check them after. You might also have some loose battery connections at battery end or starter end. You can check all the fuses in the box as long as your replace them as you go and not mix any up. Just see if they are blown. Here is a good vs bad fuse montage:455bafd1-1062-430c-8190-4394bd1a1854.jpg

The battery tested good but i have no power to anything inside the car

You most likely have a bad battery cable or cable connection. Depending on what kind of car you have (you didn't say) you could also have burned fusible links and/or blown fuses. I would check the battery cables FIRST. All connections need to be CLEAN and TIGHT.

My 1991 acura integra does not start when turning the ignition no noises or anything happens the windows and locks and radio all dont work and the battery is good. what could be causing this

If you have nothing at all, no power anywhere, check the connections on the battery and check the wires connected to the battery all the way to their connection points on the motor and the power distribution box for breaks and possible grounded positive wires. If nothing is shorted start checking the fuses and relays in the power distribution box under the hood. If any are blown replace them. In most cases this is a grounded positive wires near the battery or a blown fuse in the distribution box. This all assumes the battery does in fact have at least voltage to provide power to the lights and other systems. If it were just a matter of the vehicle not starting but the everything else working that would point to the battery having a dead cell or no amperage which is what is needed for cranking.

I have a toyota corolla and battery is fully charged no power

Sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables check the connection to both cables at both ends and I personally would make sure that i cleaned the main engine ground (where the negative wire from battery connects to engine). Good luck!

1994 c280 low miles great condition always garage kept. Went into garage no lights, no power, no crank, no dome light radio or anything else. Battery good. Key always locked all 4 doors, now only locks...

You probably have either a bad connection at the battery on the smaller wire that connects to the + terminal or you have a blown or a bad connection to a fuse strip. Fuse strip looks like this
