Previa van won't start even after battery changed out. No lights or anything. Several people have suggested the main fuse or an inline fuse could be blown. Where are they?

They're speaking of fuseable links. They are larger gauge wires that are in the wiring harness near the battery off the positive battery cable. many times they have "swollen" junctions where they connect to the wiring itself and contain the fuseable element. they carry larger multi-circuit feeds to important components like the fuse box. use a simple light (lamp) driven test light to check them before and after the swollen part of the fuseable link. when you find the bad one replace with an actual fuseable link and not just a big wire because if a short exists (say at the back of the fuse panel) an unfused feed will burn up the panel or even do more damage to the wiring harness, and the cost of the repairs will soar. fire is even a possibility.
NOTE: toyota vans often have very long and expensive battery cables, perhaps even "junctions" where one connects to the next. check these cables while disconnected with an ohm meter or by bypassing them with jumper cables. keep a fire extinguisher handy should something go wrong.

Van wont turn over not a sound i put in a new battery


if it works jumping it then the starter is fine. check fusible links to see if one is blown. check all contacts, engine grounds too, for corrosion and clean if necessary.

I have a ford windstar 2000 LX and it won't start! Please help me!!


Hi,
Ok first you need to make sure that the battery was put back in correctly. Positive terminal to positive battery cable.Then if that is correct, check the main fuse's right next to the battery area, they are large and square ensure non of these are broken, or fused.Check all the fuse's in the other fuse box in the engine bay area and also inside the vehicle.
Let me know how you get on.
Thanks
Jason

Hey I went to start my 97 toyota avalon today and it wouldn't even turn over none of the lights would come on or anything..... What's wrong with my car lol


First try jumping the vehicle. If it won't jump you you need to check the main buss fuse in the power distribution box (Should be a 40 amp). If that is good check for a grounded positive going to the starter where metal contact with the wire may have worn a hole in the insulation. If both are good and the inline fuse from the positive is not blown pull the alternator and have it and the Voltage regulator checked at Auto Zone, Advance auto or Pep Boys. One if these is going to be the problem.

I have a 91 previa and the battery light came on


sounds like you poped the main fuse in the under hood fuse panel. before that the battery light on in a toyota pretty much points to an alternator problem.
