You don't give the make model and year, most of the time the positive cable goes directly from the battery to the starter, and the negative goes from the battery to the engine block or frame. If you have no lights or power, you would check for voltage at both ends of the positive and a good ground at both ends of the negative.
If you have lights but the starter won't engage, you would check for voltage at the starter with the key switch in the start position. There is a neutral or clutch switch in that circuit that could have failed.

have the battery tested to make sure it is charged up all the way. It may be new but something on the car could be draining it at night. A car I had contained an auto-leveling system that started to loose pressure and the pumps would run like 90 percent of the time and killed my battery several times.You should also check the terminals to be sure that the connections are good and tight. If you can wiggle it off by hand then it could be to loose. Any corrosion could also effect it as well. I have had alternators go out and the auto shop declare it good. Basically unprofessional high school kids that know how to cross reference a number and use a telephone is what we have around here in our auto parts stores, none with any idea what a muffler even is working there. Could also be the internal regulator inside the alternator malfunctioning. Sometimes they dont even catch that either. Could explain the ampre meter going crazy. Kinda doubt that though. Try jumping it off and see if the motor turns a fires. Hope anything helps .

SOURCE: my truck stalled lights on dash wont come on

sounds like a ground or power failure you will need to check with a test light from what point to what point you are getting power to etc...then its also from your description possible to do with the electrical system itself i suggest looking for the obvious 1 st then ck for shorted fuses and relays broken worn cracked wires etc that's a starting point also sounds as if the wiper and tun signal armature have a connection to this issue !

Try jamming it into park again, or holding it in park while you turn the key. It could be your neutral safety switch is giving you trouble.

SOURCE: my 04 2500 truck will not crank..getting seems

solenoid could be bad. a fuse could also be blown or your ignition switch is bad. Could also be loose connection at starter. check all wiring to make sure they are tight. there will be a small wire going to starter take a test light and have someone hold the key to start it and make sure you have power at the small wire this will help you narrow down the problem

New stater, stater still makes clicking sound

First you should check to make sure the engine is not locked up by turning it over manually. If you can turn the engine manually, then check your battery terminal ends to make sure you have good, clean and tight connections. Typically, a faulty electrical connection is the main culprit that will cause your situation. If you still suspect a faulty connection, try having someone turn the ignition key while you wiggle the battery cables to see if it will try to start. This should help you narrow down the problem area.

Turn key, makes clicking noise but not start.

Double check your battery connections. If the battery is new and the starter makes a series of clicking noises when the key is held in the start position than you are not getting a good power supply to the starter or there is not a sufficient ground.
