Check & clean the battery cables and the posts on the battery. if its a 2.2 litre u might check the ground cable going down to the right side of the engine.

I have a 92 Chevy Camaro the battery is brand new but I have no power at all. I have inspected all power wires from front bumper to fire wall and no bad wires, why do I not have any power whatsoever?


If there is NO power to ANYTHING, suspect a cable issue/connection. If there is some power to some accessories, possible fuse link blown at starter area. You may need to do a voltage drop test to determine the source of the problem on the battery cables

Why is there no power to anything but the anti-theft light on dash?


after each step below check for power:
1. make sure you have a good ground. tighten battery negative if loose (also at the other end of the cable.) (tighten also the b+ if loose)
2. temporarily disconnect the wiring to the alternator. (tape any exposed wire.) (to verify if the alternator is not shorted)
3. check the ignition switch.

No power motor will not crank ,no lights no nothing all fuses are ok what is wrong


Start with the battery. Make sure it is at a full state of charge, at least 12.6 volts on a voltmeter. If it is under 12 volts have it charged, or if battery is over 4 years old, best to replace it.

With a good battery, clean all battery connections. Get rid of all corrosion so you have a clean metal to metal contact. A solution of water and baking soda helps a lot. Replace questionable battery cables. Then get a good tight fit on all cables, battery, starter, and ground.

Now if you still have no power to anything, lights, or switch, horn, anything...then you will have to find the fusible links just off the battery that distribute power to the head light switch, to the key switch, to parts of the fuse panel, etc. If fusible links blow, they can be cut out and replaced. They act like fuses, designed to burn out to protect the rest of the circuit from burning up from a short or amperage surge from a shorted electric motor. Once you get power to the lights and the key switch, you should be good. Go from there.

Put in a new battery and there is still no power to anything


That's none to the nth degree. A 1983 probably still had fusible links rather than today's maxi-fuses inside power distribution centers or boxes near the battery. The fusible links are the first connection after the battery and serve the same purpose as any old fuse, protection against overloads that can damage wiring or small electric motors or switches. They are designed to burn out before further or severe damage occurs. The fusible links should be close to the battery, since they carry larger currents, serving all the other components they distribute power to. Check to see if your car may even have a main fuse element, kind of like rather than several fusible links combine them into one main. Recall as how datsuns, hondas were like that.

Your battery connections must be clean and tight, with a good ground for the battery to send power through the wires. Start at the closest point and check it point by point. You'll find the problem.

When I turned off my car last night it was like when a fuse blows in your house; all the electricity just cut out at once. Then no power for anything, I mean anything. I am guessing alernator, but hoping...


well first of all. check main fuse in fuse box. to check alternator--- with car off at battery, voltage should be at least 12.5 to 13 volts. then when running. there should be at least 14 volts or a bit higher, at battery. but it sounds more like a fuse then anything else. if all is satisfactory then check to see if power is going through ignition. have a good one !!

I have a toyota corolla and battery is fully charged no power


Sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables check the connection to both cables at both ends and I personally would make sure that i cleaned the main engine ground (where the negative wire from battery connects to engine). Good luck!

No electrical power to anything - even dome light.


Check battery and chassis earth connections are ok.
Check for 12v power at the fuse/power disrtribution fuse bus; - if no power there, trace circuit wiring back to battery.

No power to the fuse box


i think it has 2 boxes. but id look at the ignition switch. do the headlights work. and is there a big fuse very close to the battery you might be over looking. and a lot of time the fuse box gets power from the starter. check to see if you have power there. and does this truck turn over good luck
