Question about 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue
Battery good alternator good, I have no power to car, not even a dash light
You may need to trace down the main ground for the vehicle. Go from the negative battery post and follow that lead to where it is attached. Remove the bolt and clean the area and reattach. If you have a digital volt ohm meter put it into the ohms mode and see if you have resistance. Go from the unattached end of the neg. cable at the batter to any place on the motor or frame and see if you have resistance. If you do, remove the pos. cable and go from the battery end of cable to the fuse box junction and see if you have resistance. (Note: when in ohms mode, do not ever jumper where you have power. it can damage your meter)
A quick check that works too is to take jumper cables and attach the black clamp of the cable to the negative battery, and then find a place on the motor or frame and attache the other black end.
If nothing happens then you need to work the positive end. you may have a bad power lead to the fuse box or perhaps the connection in the fuse box is so badly corroded that it has disconnected.
Hope this helps.
