The battery terminals may have been corroded to start with, and sitting off for a day could have made it worse. So wire brush and grease them.
Then remember the engine ground strap you removed has to be reinstalled.
But check the body ground connection as well. It should also be brushed and greased.
Then use a test light to trace where power stops.
The starter it the first junction to check.
There is a main fusible link either in the wire to the fusebox or in the fusebox.

I believe they look like one of them in this link:

1999 Sable wagon - the dash and rear lights don't work. Brake lights and headlights are fine. Any ideas?


This can happen when the wires to the lights come loose. If you know someone who can get in the back and check the wiring, and can hook them back up, that's probably all it is. Sometimes items in the trunk, or the back of an SUV, or just hard road bumps can shake the connections loose.

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.


Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

No power


You have probably missed re-connecting part of the electrical wiring- probably missed a ground connection..
Check you have re-connected:-
the main power supply via the fusible link (or in line maxifuse),
the battery negative terminal is correctly grounded to chassis/frame,
the motor ground connection to the chassis or battery negative.

Dash and running lights does not work, everything


The fuse to the taillights/running lights?
It can't be a grounding problem if both taillights and dash don't work.
If only taillights don't work, it would be suspicious grounding.
