No power of any kind after tried to jump-start engine

Car not driven for two weeks - did not start. Tried to jump-start the engine but then I have lost power completely to any system. Checked the "transparent" fuses inside and under the hood - they seem fine. Where else to look? Please...

    Thanks jgrady335. Found a service manual online and all pointed to the 120A battery fuse. However, after a couple of hours it just started working again (was heated or something?). Gave up on the cheap jump starter and ran to Walmart for a new EverStart Maxx 24FN battery (a CR best buy) - and started at the first key.

    The other problem remains - a small but continous power leak with the car, I'll keep an eye on it...

No power at all check battery cabes and connection, check main power fuses with a meter. break may not be appearent. Think back you didnt by chance hook up cables backwards did you, important to know. all power goes through the main fuse block under the hood start there.

    When the car is off and the key out of the ignition only a few items draw power and only very little. the radio the ECU clock trans computer (if equipt). with a meter you can start at the bigger fuses under the hood. check the amprage being drawn through each fuse. remember to leave all doors shut, no key in ign. and to pull the bulb from the under hood lamp. when ever you open a door or trunck a light comes on and draws power. Good luck its time consuming but eventually you will get there.

2004 chrysler pacifica no power even after jump

check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

1000 volt jump start placed incorrectly

Your system probably has a lot of relays and other electronics that are bad now. Your Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may be cooked as well. You may also have a fusable link that has been blown as well. The fusable link is basicly an in-line fuse that you have to replace the wire to replace the fuse. Get a wiring schematic and look to see if theres a fuse or similar that you misssed. You may find that you dont have power going to all or part of one of your fuse panels.

Hope this helps...

Accelration only occurs at high rpms...and now car won't start

if the problem is when u go into gears it could be the clutch is going out. when it slips i can cause reduction like that. after you accelerate the clutch has time to engage and will provide power. the clicking sound is something diffrent. try charging the battery not just jumping it. if the car doing the jumping is not providing the right amount of power it wont start.

1996 Subaru Legacy No Power At All

Last night I checked the battery and it was still good. I disconnected and then reconn ected both terminals and that brought the power back. When I turned the key the power went out again. I repeated the procedure but did not turn the key. Instead, I took off the knee bolster and tried to wiggle the wires under the dash to see if I could find the source since it seems to be related to the ignition. Nothing cut the power so I started it up and it worked fine except for the check engine light which was flashing that says I have a misfire condition. I drove the car 25 miles to work this morning and will be taking it to the dealer for a better inspection.
