Could be a broken or disconnected battery cable. If you are sure that the battery has a full charge, and the battery is connected properly (tight clean connection at the terminals) and the lights do not go on (including the brake lights when you step on the brakes) then there is a bad connection at the battery/terminal/cable for certain.

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.

87 mustang wont start


The interlock can have something to do with it. I've actually seen those devices rob the battery and create no starts. If it's not installed properly, then it can cause different things to go wrong with the car. Check the condition of your cables. Use a remote start button on the solonoid to make sure the solenoid isn't bad. Load test the battery as well. Check to make sure that your alternator is charging properly.

You might need a new starter or a new alternator. Get it checked at a shop to make sure you find the right thing that you need to change.

96 ford mustang gt charging problem


ignition coil not powering right

also some useful info
batterys are refurbed these days and sometimes an unlucky person can still get a dead cell battery several times even if the you bought brand new
i took mine back 4 times before i found a good one that kept its charge
dead cells dont show them selves very well on battery tests even though dead cell the tester would show good show dont think that there is something definatley wrong you could be in same ditch i was before with my batterys
alternator testers at some shops are not reliable enough i recommend a voltage tester to battery
