    I have the same issue. Have power to the horn relay but that's it. Smells like a fusable link somewhere.

You've got a good start measuring the voltage at the battery. Looks like you've got a low voltage problem. Common on the GM side post batteries is battery acid leaking at the positive battery cable post on the battery. I would recommend removing and checking the cables/posts on the battery. If everything is clean, reassemble the battery cables to the battery. If there is excessive wetness or corrosion on EITHER of the cables/posts, you should replace the battery first, and clean the cables. A leaking battery is going to give you more trouble down the road if you just clean it. If the battery connections on the existing battery are clean, charge the battery with a battery charger, or jump start the car. Use your trusty meter and measure voltage at the battery with the engine running. (Also do this if you replace the battery for leaks). You should read in the neighborhood of 13.5 - 14.0 volts if your charging system is working correctly. If you are reading in the low 12 volt range with the engine running, something is wrong with your charging system, and most likely putting a strain on the battery, preventing it from receiving the charge it needs. If your existing battery is not leaking, cables are clean and tight, jump starts okay, reads 13.5-14ish volts with the engine running, but refuses to crank the engine over after the engine runs for about 15-20 minutes, it's time for a new battery.

Car lost all electric , no ligths,radio,no ignition, why


Make sure battery has 12volts and leave it connected, terminals clean, hook jumper vehicle, your car + to + and neg to good engine block or chassis ground. Now see if u have power, if car starts disconnect cables and read voltage dc at battery should read around 14 volts if not, your alternator is at fault.

My car is showing no signs of any electrical power


Check the battery cables from the battery to the main fuse block and to the starter and all the grounds. Have you tested the battery to make sure it has a charge?

What causes the chevy s10 not to get no electrical power at all?


Check if your battery is good. Use a meter for this. You need 12 to 14 volts. Check your terminal connections are solid and clean. If it is not clean you will have to open them and clean using a soltuion from the auto parts store.

Take off jumper cables it dies


You're alternator is dead. Once started the alternator should generate enough power by itself to keep the engine running.

Will not maintain electrical charge. It works fine for a few months and then one day it has no power to start the engine. I hook up jumper cables and it instantly has power to hood light door beepers etc....


Check that all battery cables are clean and tight.

Check the date/age of battery, and compare to the rated life of the battery. If anywhere near the end of the rated life, suspect the battery. Suspect battery if all terminals are clean and tight.

Nothing electrical works


the main terminal is a heavy red wire attached to the fuse block it should be clean and tight. also you can hook a test light from the battery neg. to the terminal it should light. if it doesn't light you could have a bad engine ground (primary ground). or a poor connection tot he main fuse block terminal previously mentioned
