Wont start, no headlights, power windows, horn, heater controls, or guages. Taillights work and doorlocks work as do all the interior lights


I think I would suggest checking the fuses again.
There are two cables coming off the positive battery post. You would need to trace those cables to find out which fuses are dead and alive rather than just blown.
I'm showing a 50amp fuse and a starter relay in the power distribution center near the battery along with a dozen or more fuses for other main circuits. One of the circuit bars could be damaged under the fuse box.

1998 lincoln town car with 81,000 original miles. engine froze-up while sitting in drive way for 3 weeks while on vacation. why?


when you say "froze up"can you turn the engine over by hand?if it won't start with a key the maybe your battery and/or connections need attention or was there a flood while you were gone,for instance was the car full of water when you opened the doors?Did someone else drive it?seriously,do the dash lights come on?do the interior lights come on?As far as why,well ones never knows why things happen,lets just call it providence.

Replace the crank sensor as they get hot they will sometimes quit working. The temp light comes on everytime the engine is turned off and the switch is on. Next time it dies spray or pour some water on the sensor then see if it will crank and if it does you know what it is.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

1990 chevy silverado amp guage flutters with turn


Are we talking at adle or at speed? How much, and has it always done it? Before you start replacing parts or tearing evrything down, service your battery and all connections on the engine. Make sure there is a ground from the battery to the frame as well as the engine. Lots of times, people take these off and the resistance is too much in the system.
It could be an overly sensitive ammeter and if that is what it is, don't worry about it.
Your idle might be a little low if it only happens at a light, or when you are not moving.
The other thing it might be is your alternator. Take it off and into your local parts store and have them test it. If it is internal, it could be diode or winding shorted or brushes or possibly the regulator. they can tell you with a bench test and if you are handy, repair the problem internally.

It sounds like either alternator or computer, I f you can get it to run on its own pull the positive battery cable off the battery and if it dies its your alternator. And this is no real way to check the computer except going up to a AutoZone and they can check codes for free

You knocked a ground loose somewhere or you are drawing power from the wrong source.
