If the wrench contected the two posts it could have shorted out the battery. Before buying a new one try taking the terminals off and cleaning them. Sometimes the sudden draw of current will break contact in a dirty terminal.

1992 Fleetwood P30 motorhome I change the fuel pump it was working and then all of a sudden all my power to my dash lights went out I jumped solenoid and got power back to my dashboard now my fuel


You need an electrician. He will probably need a wiring diagram to figure out what circuit has the malfunction. Have you checked to make sure the fuel pump fuse has not blown?
By jumping the solenoid, do you mean you bypassed it? I don't even know what solenoid you are referring to.
The pump circuit, if like other GM vehicles of those years, probably has a fuel pump relay (under the hood) and a fuel pump fuse- probably a 15 amp blue fuse, could be under the hood or under the dash. If you check all fuses, then find the pump relay, now you can check there for power available to the relay. The pcm is what signals this relay on. Does your pcm have power? Does your check engine light come on when you turn the key to ON?

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).
