Follow your (+) positive cable to the starter. You should find it somewhere along the line. If not try using a different battery.

Key wont start 79 mark have to jump the solenoid replaced ICM & solenoid havent checked fuseible lin short at pos cable caused this k


Check the small wires going to the starter solenoid. Hook up a voltmeter on the wires and see if you have power in the crank position. The ignition relay may be why power is not going through the keyswitch. The fusible link, probably not a problem if the engine runs.

My battery is dead,cant get into truck


I would try crawling under vehicle and hooking red jumper cable to big copper stud on starter where the battery cable hooks up, hook the black cable to the frame and hook the other ends up to another vehicle like you were jumping it off. And it should feed the battery with enough power to get the doors open to get the hood up. Good Luck

Mine was a bad battery, it does not have the power to activate the solenoid switch for the fuse box, that is the fast cliking sound you hear, test your battery,hook it up to another battery or jumper cables.

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?


Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

Power window will not work going up how can i pull the window up until i can get it fixed 1998 lincoln town car


remove the door panel,, locate the 2 wires that go to the window motor use a 12 volt power supply with at least 10 amps,, reverse the wires to either go up or down, your problem if it is a switch not the motor, can be solved doing this, ( if you don't have a 12 volt power supply, use jumper cables and your battery ,, use insulated clips to touch the wire connection for the motor so you don't short it out , replace the switch

Will not run without booster cables attached,have already replaced alt.


If your battery has no power in it at all then this will be the result. The alternator needs power to generate more power. It uses a small current drawn from the battery and mechanical energy from the engine to generate the electrical power needed to recharge the battery. If the battery has a short circuit inside(Which happens on old batteries) or perhaps is not connected properly the engine will die as soon as the jumper cables are disconnected. First off, make sure the cables are connected correctly. Red wires go on the terminal marked with an +. If the wires arent color coded then the cable connected to the bodywork goes on -.
If correct try switching the battery with one from another vehicle.
If you have a voltmeter measure the voltage across the battery terminals with the engine idling and then with the engine at about 3500 rpm. If there is no difference between the 2 measurements you have a duff alternator or faulty wiring.
