Perhaps fusible link, in the hot wire from the battery to the dash, a short wire that looks as though it is plugged in to the cable, not obviousto view whjen blown has to be bent

1994 Mazda Protege wouldn't start, battery seemed dead replaced battery with a new one and still no power


Does anything work? Lights, radio? Do the warning lights and gauges turn on when key is turned to on? That would verify power is getting to the ignition switch and is being sent out.
Pretty limited in what you can check without a voltmeter or test light. If you have power to the ignition switch, need to know if power is getting to the starter solenoid on the starter motor when the key is held in cranking position. If power there, likely a new starter is called for-have yours tested.

2005 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE PARASITIC DRAIN


Most drains are caused by door switches or hood switches not turning off lights. It could really be anything. You can either get a meter, pull off your Negative battery cable and put one meter lead on your now off.negative battery cable and negative battery terminal. Set your meter to read dc amps. Start pulling fuses one by one until the meter reads less then .5 amps or 500 mA. If you dont have a meter you can try pulling one every night until you battery no longer drains and narrow it down from there. Anything with power could really be causing this. Alternator and starters are also known for draining batterys while not running.

Fuel pump not getting power.Replaced fuel relay and pump. computer code was reading cam position sensor. I dont believe that would cause a no power to fuel pump. It is trying to turn and it will turn with...


If it is similar to Quest, the fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when you turn the key to ON. Then, unless the engine is running, the pump shuts off. It runs when the key is in START position though. Can you hear the pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON? Listen carefully for the hum of the pump in the tank.
Normally, the power relay powers up the PCM and it applies power to the fuel pump relay. Then you get power to the pump.
Also, look at owner manual for all fuses that apply to fuel pump system.

I put the key in the ignition and turn it forward to just before it turns over you know when the dash lights come on. i do that then when i try to turn it over all that happens is it clicks then my lights...


Suspect the positive battery terminal is either corroded, or the cable itself has corroded through. If you have a meter or test light, look for voltage at the starter solenoid where the positive battery cable connects to. Have someone try the starter while watching this point. If the voltage disappears during the start attempt, try replacing the positive battery cable. There are replacement ends available (for the battery end), but they are problematic at best. Just remove the old terminal, cut the insulation back somewhat, and mount the replacement on the cable (two small bolts). Hope this helps!

Car will not start


Double check the positive connection at the battery. Check both but pay attention to the positive. These batteries have a problem with the terminal working loose from the inside and causing exactly this issue. This uses a 8mm or 5/16" wrench(which ever you can find first, or pliers if no wrenches). Make sure both are tight. If both are tight, remove the battery and most autoparts stores will test them free of charge and replace as necessary. Let me know if you need anything else.

My 99 Expedition just died while driving. After towing it home it now wont even turn over. I can jump the starter and it engages and I have power to dome light and headlights but when I turn key nothing (...


I has an 86 Mustang that did a similar thing and it turned out that the battery actually shorted out. This happens when one of the plates inside the battery brakes off and then touches another plate. When mine died it was like I turned the iginition off. It wouldn't turn over even with jumper cables.
