- Keeping the head lamps ON, start the engine.
If the lights die,
- Check the battery terminals.
- Check battery state of charge.
- Charging system.
If the lights still glow sharply,
- Check fuses and relays in under the hood fuse and relay box junction.
- Battery to starter motor cable.
- Battery to engine ground and chassis ground cable.

Battery drain overnight


Usually if battery is good. Its usually a parasitic drain. You can use a standard multimeter, and put across each fuse top. Two little tips. If you see a voltage even a little bit. That's a drain. Find what fuse go's too. And diagnose.

1995 dodge intrepid wont start. Battery is fully charge but no power to anything. Car wont start


The alternator would not come into play unless the battery was dead.
Could be corrosion inside one of the battery cables, or a blow maxi fuse for the fuse box. Or a bad ground connection.
You would need to take a meter or test light and check for power at the starter post, and the major fuses.

Battery won't stay charged but the alternator is working good?


If the alternator is charging properly, then you have a drain on the system that could come from anything eclectically powered, you will need to start by removing the fuse to the radio and/or clock, then connect a test light from the negative post on the battery to the battery cable (negative battery cable disconnected positive connected), if the light comes on, you have a drain and will need to start pulling and replacing fuses one by one to isolate the affected system, if the test light has not gone off while pulling fuses, you may have a drain coming from the alternator or starter and will have to disconnect those.

2001 Camaro Z28 5.7L V8 wont start. Battery is showing full charge, Have not had any starter noise or problems, Ran fine. When I turn the key, most of the dash lights go out, but some stay on, dome light...


Sounds like a battery cable problem. Check the battery cable terminals for corrosion and tightness. If those are fine, have a load test done on the battery.
Here is some troubleshooting tips:

Battery terminal connections loose of corroded. Check the cable terminals at the battery; tighten cable clamp and/or clean off corrosion as necessary.
Battery discharged or faulty. It the cable ends are clean and tight on the battery posts, turn the key to the On position and switch on the headlights or windshield wipers. If they won't run, the battery is discharge.
Automatic transmission not engaged In park (PI or Neutral (N).
Broken, loose or disconnected wires In the staging circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid and ignition switch (on steering column).
Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. II manual transmission, place transmission In gear and rack the vehicle to manually turn the engine. Remove starter and Inspect pinion and flywheel.
Starter solenoid faulty.
Starter motor faulty.
Ignition switch tautly.
Engine seized. Try lo turn to crankshaft with a large socket and breaker bar on the pulley bolt.

IS THERE A FUSE FOR THE ECU ON A 92 EAGLE TALON


I don't think so. I got a 95 and I've done all kinds of electrical checking for various things and to my knowledge there isn't. There's fuses for the ignition and engine along with other electrical items but no specific computer fuse that would turn off a computer. I assume the car won't start?

If your car is simply not starting it could be something as simple as the neutral safety switch if you only hear a click turning the key. Disconnect under left side dash. White and has a green and black wire coming from button behind clutch pedal.

If car cranks but just wont start then could be numerous things. Check the 30 and 40 amp fuses under hood. Make sure battery terminals are connected tight and clean with brush tool if needed. If battery is fine and charged, I assume you have checked, then I'd focus on the ignition system.

ignition switch (in steering column)
neutral safety switch (disconnect above pedal)
starter relay (under radio)
starter solenoid
starter

If cranks then neutral, ignition and relay switches are fine
If clicks then ignition and relay fine but neutral switch or solenoid may be bad

2000 Ford Ranger 50 amp fuse burns out


Try disconnecting your alternator temporarily. It may have a shorted diode but that would also normally drain the battery too unless it charges over a relay.
The starter relay can't cause this alone and the currents through the ignition switch mostly control relays. If removing the alternator cable didn't work, I would remove the starter (only a few bolts) after disconnecting the ground cable from your battery and try turning it by hand. It should be stiff but not impossible and if it refuses to turn, it may have a short from the field to the case.  It isn't really possible to use a multimeter to check the starter's windings because they are very low resistance when normal (the beast draws 120-200 amps to start) and would look like shorts on a standard meter anyhow.
