Question about 1998 Chevrolet Astro

1998 Chevy Astro Van has no electrical power

1998 Chevy Astro. Worked fine when I got home last night. This morning...no electrical whatsoever. The battery is less than 4 months old. Still I re-charged the battery (which showed full charge anyway)...no luck. Checked fuses...no luck. I also traced the hot cable down as far as possible and it seemed ok. I have no electrical power at all and it was working fine when I got home the night before.

1998 Ford Explorer completely dead


If you don't have any electric functions working I would have to say that the battery is dead.  Where the lights left on last night or a door open?  You can take the battery out and take it to your local auto parts store and they can test it for you to make sure it's not dead and if it's not, then you can have them charge it for you.  Let me know if you need anything else.

could be the alternator. take a voltage meeter out and check your battery. battery by it's self should be about 12-13 volts. and if you manage to start the car even if you jump it. reaD IT AGIAN. WITH A WORKING ALTERNATOR YOU SHOULD BE AROUND 14 BUT NO LESS than 13. the ford engine is some what up side down and the alternator if on the bottom. good luck!
