If you reconnected the battery and have no power, check the secondary hot wire(smaller) cable for a failed fusable link..this is a wire designed to fail in the event of overload to save an electrical fire in the primary system..this wire is around 6-8 inches long and is of a different material than the copper stuff..also some vehilces are equipted with a main fuse thats bigger than most common fuses..its around 40-50 amp and a couple inches long and mounted in an underhood box not far from thebattery.. check both and repost findings..if in doubt connect a ten amp battery charger in place of the battery and listen for any hum or buzz in the system..a relay may be stuck somewhere...

Iam working on a farmall m. That doesnt have spark. It has a new coil and points and codenser. There is juice to the coil. Any suggestions would be appreciated..

You used to be able to find coil testers, but they are truly hard to find today. You can test the coil by disconnecting the points lead. With the switch on (power to coils) short the points lead to ground and then release it, the coil should discharge each time you break contact with ground.

Can you help me, anti-yhief cut power to engine and it won-t start back up

Do you have the year make and model.? If it is a anti theift with a key immobilizer the vehicle will just start and idle for a few seconds then shut off and the anti theft light will remain on or be blinking. Then we know you are dealing with the anti theft. do you have another key to crank the engine if you do use a spare key and hold the key next to the immobilizer and crank the engine see if that will give if it doesnt try this method. roll the window down with window down disconnect the negative battery cable wait 5 minutes reconnect put the key in the ignition but dont crank it just yet turn it in the on spot not the crank for 2 minutes then crank it and see if that start the vehicle . If this doesnt work then you will need to call a mobile locksmith who reprograms the immobilizer

Need to rest computer ran low on oil wont restart

Disconnect the positive battery terminal for 5 minuted , then after carefully reconneting try it again . If this doesnt help you may need to replace a fuse inside the "computer". Hope the latter works. Good luck!
