    Would this be the solution cause it is woerd that all the intier lights work but not the window. The car act like no power is getting to the generator. Anthony

    My brother is trying to trouble shot this problem. Is it a kill switch on the car. It is just the factory alarm system that is in it. I was thinks why would the lights come on but the windows won't roll up or there seems like no power is getting to the alternator. That is the weird issue to me. I took it apart cause the slave master cylinder went bad. But I found out that it would be a bigger job then I can handle on my own. I remover the housing so I can get a better look at the transmission.

Make sure there were not positive leads that you left off when connecting the battery. There are more than one hook up that supplies power to the vehicle systems. Check and make sure that no wiring is pinched or damaged; possibly from rodents if the car was sitting for 7 months.

    There is no kill switch with the factory alarm, just the starter disable. So if that was the case everything would work but the starter.

    Voltage comes from the alternator to the battery, if your testing at the alt for juice on the hot lead, and you get no reading, then you must have a wire between the battery and the alt off somewhere.

I am loosing all coolant after about 50kms, no sign of leaks or overheating , i have a 1996 9000 cse with 2.3 turbo engine

If you don't see any leaks, then your head gasket is shot. Your coolant is going out your tailpipe.
