Made sure battery was fully charged. It has always been hard to start but now it won't do anything. my 87 ramcharger runs fine once you jump it, but till then theres no power. i checked the grounds,but their fine. also no headlights and driver tailamp has no runing light.

    Did you check both ends of the battery cables?



    Are there any bare wires on the alternator whcih could be grounding out?

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.
