Check the big red wire on the back of the alternator for power. The wire likes to get corroded in half inside the casing but is still held together BY the casing. you can even take a jumper cable from the positive side of the battery to the big/single wire on the back of the alternator. Now , you could have a bad ground also. take a voltmeter or test light and with the ground of the tester on the ground of the battery check for power on the case of the alternator. Another thing , does the alternator or charge light on the dash light up woth the key off? the alternator knows to "start-up" or "field-up" by the power it recieves through the bulb before the engine is started. once the engine starts the small brown wire on the alternator goes hot and shuts the light on the dash off cause it now has power on both legs of it. if the bulb blows then the alternator won't field-up. good luck.

If the engine is turning over and it still wont start try shooting a little starting fluid in the air cleaner to see if it will run .. if so your fuel pump is either bad or the fuel filter is getting dirty.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry

You probably have a parasitic battery drain. A good way to diagnose this is to disconnect the battery ground and plug in a light (a head lamp bulb is ideal, drains a lot of amps) in between the battery ground and the ground cable. Now with the key off, door closed (leave the driver door open but close the latch with a screwdriver or similar object) and every accessorie off, the bulb should not light (you'll have to wait a few minutes so all the modules go in sleep mode) After 10 minutes, if the bulb still light, even slightly, you've got you're self a drain. Now to diagnose, simply start with the undehood fuse block and pull fuses one by one until the bulb goes off. That will tell you witch circuit is causing the drain. put the fuse back in and confirm the light goes on again. Then verify what is in that fuse's circuit (wiring diagram realy useful here). You may also go pull the fuses in the instrument pannel fuse block to center in on the faulty circuit. Then you should concentrate on that cicuit to find the drain. Could be a wire or component short to ground or even a faulty connection or ground. Sounds complicated but it's not that hard.
