Question about Cars & Trucks
I have zero power/lights/click. terminals are new, battery good 13.4 V on multimeter. cables all connected. fuses good, fuseable link good...cant find the problem! recently(3 days previous) had new terminals put on, but they didnt clean the wires and crimped on new heavy duty(unnecessary) terminals. they also sprayed a blue anti corrosive. is it possible the spray is affecting the connection? if so how can i remove it to check? where else could the problem be?
Hi indigo you can remove the blue anti corrosion spray by removing the terminal and scrubing it with a wire brush also the hiaces have a main fuse in what looks like a white box attached to the positive wire close the battery that has fuses that look like strips of metal that if they are broken the power is cut to the vehicle. It usually takes a short circuit to blow the fuse but i have seen a few blow out of the blue.
Good luck i hope this helps

I have the same problem. I am half way through. I removed the starter but don't think that is it. The van always starts when jumped. The driving lights, clock, and radio work even though the key is not in the ignition. Something must not be disengaging and drains the battery in a few hours as if the key is on!!

I would assume the starter is the problem,sometimes tapping on the starter with a hammer lightly while trying to start the vehicle will allow the starter to turn the engine over,replacement of the starter would be the solution.
