    I've already tested the battery (14 volts) and the cables. Is there a relay or fuse that could interupt the entire system like this?

My 2000 BMW Z3 Roadster completely shutdown. Nothing works even though the battery is fully charged. What can I do to remedy this problem?

Well you have some power. So I would check grounds first. Main three are the battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body.

Sounds as though the battery is no good,
unless you know otherwise & also had it tested
Charging a battery doesn't address it's internal
You have battery cables that corrode inside & can be
voltage drop tested
You have the starter & solenoid,ignition sw & such, to name
a few,lots of possible causes & things to check

Ignition system is not getting any power. I replaced my battery and still no power. The key doesn't even trigger the door ajar tone. I checked all fuses and connections. Could it be a sensor or a part

Make sure your battery is fully charged.You have some power so your battery or connections may be bad.You may have a fried fusible link.I cant tell you where it is located though.Check your cable connections at the starter and the ground at the end opposite the battery.

Battery is fully charged but vehicle wont turn over or start. Keyless entry not working, no lights etc. All connections look intact and good. Seems as though there is no power what so ever. Whats wrong

If the battery is charged and you have no power anywhere it has to be in the terminals or cables.try moving all your cables with your lights turned on and see if and when they come on. It could be all the way at the starter end of the pos. cable

I own a 91 Mercury ( ford) Capri convertible. I went to start it and it turned for a second then died. All power to the car died instantly. There is no lights no radio no lighter no instrument light no...

Has to be a cable connection issue of some sort. Check the other end of the battery cables, either the ground connection to the chassis, or power connection to the under hood fuse box. Could be that one of the battery cables has broken inside the insulation yet the connector looks good. Try using a cheap ohm-meter to see if there is a break in either cable ...keep looking!

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 wont start

You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on.  Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.
