Check all of the fuses and the PAL fusible links in the fuse box located under the hood in the engine compartment.

Turns over but won't start


I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

No start or no electrical power inside or outside of the vehicle


No headlights, horn, or brake lights? I would expect nothing at the ignition switch, either, then? No warning lights or gauges with key on?

Any chance the battery is discharged? It would have to be very low or dead if connections are clean and tight. Inspect the cables, take them off and clean the terminals of corrosion, tighten them down good. Check the ground where it bolts to metal-if not a good ground, power will not flow. From the battery, power is sent through fuse links and maxi fuses in the power distribution box, to distribute power through all the car's circuits. Either a fuse link or a maxi fuse will send power to the ignition switch. Another will send power to the headlight switch, and another will send power to the fuse panel under the dash, powering those fuses that are hot at all times (like the brake lights and horn).
It sounds like your power is not getting from the battery to the power distribution box, if just nothing works. Bad battery or bad connection, possibly.

97 civic has power going to and from fuse box. Still no headlights,no dome light, no horn, no ignition, no power at all. Replaced battery and all relevant fuses look intact.


You have a 40amp fuse powering the key switch. The headlights are on a different 30amp fuse.
Do you have power on both fuses ?

My headlights wont come on. i checked fuses, bulbs and all is good. what might be the problem


Not an expert on autos but I did own a Buick Regal of that era. I had problems with mine also. They finally found that the wires to my headlight were crossed ad bare with the wires to my horn. Every time I turned on my light the horn kept blasting. Check for stripped wires near your headlights or have someone check them with a voltage meter to see if there is even power getting to the headlamps. Good luck.

I have 2002 dodge Dakota I sparked the battery and now the headlights taillights cargo and dome and dash lights don't work I replaced headlights switch checked fuses and replaced computer idk what to do...


Check these fuses again:
In the Power Distribution Center (in the engine compartment, left fender panel) Fuse #3 (20 Amp) Fuse #7 (40 Amp), Fuse #12 (20 Amp) and in the Junction Block (on the left end of the dash) Fuse #1 (15 Amp)
Use a test lamp and make sure that these fuses have power. All of these fuses should all have power at all times, regardless of ignition switch position. If they are all good and have power, then you probably need to replace your Central Timer Module. All of the circuits you listed are dependant on this module for operation.

The Central Timer Module is located at the left kick panel.

The CTM is available in a BASE or a HIGHLINE configuration. The BASE and HIGHLINE CTM provide the following features:
• Battery saver functions for exterior and interior lights

Engine doesnt respond to key


Welcome to Fixya

You may want to check first if you have a fully charged or good battery. You may honk your horn or test the headlight. If battery is ok then you might need to test the ignition system. Turn on your headlights and try to turn the key to start position. Your headlight should go dim. If nothing happens then the problem is the ignition assembly.

Thank you for using Fixya!

1995 dodge ram 1500, battery is good, no power at all anywhere including the horn and headlights. could it be the ignition switch? thanks in advance!


It sounds more like a bad connection to the battery. Lose terminal, Broken cable are both posibilities. The head lights and horn should work regardless of the ignition being on or off. Check all your connections to your battery and you should find the problem.
