Check your ground wire. Negative batt. connection on tight? Negative cable GROUND solid without corrosion? (Where its bolted to the body.)
Any secondary negative connections from main neg wire. Clean dry no rust ! If its loose or rusty, remove the conection, clean it up with a stiff wire brush, bolt it back down firmly. If its corroded you may need new fittings from an auto parts store. Spray liberally with WD 40 after fixing.

You did check the battery first right? Its not dead flat?
Hope this helps.

Battery his good..jump the battery for 1 second. Car starts drive 2 block car will not start sometime it would start for about 2 weeks then just like that it will not start. Tried everything

When I had a similar problem, the culprit turned out to be a loose battery cable. Is the negative cable tightly secured to the battery post, with nothing between the metal clasp and the lead terminal?

2004 PT Cruiser, won't start, new battery. No clicking or lights Check ignition and still nothing

Check the main fuse in the fuse block under the hood where the heavy battery positive cable feeds into the fuse block. It should have a high amp fuse ( around 125 to 175 amp ) at the entry point of the heavy gauge battery cable. It may have blown. Has it been jumped or used to jump another vehicles battery ?

After changing battery , I have no power at all , have I blown a fuze?

Check the voltage. Check to see when you turn the key on, do you get any lights on the dash. Also, check the headlights. If you are getting nothing, then you definitely have a blown fuse. This probably happened from attempting to jump the vehicle incorrectly or hooking up the leads backwards. Check all fuses in the underhood fuse block, not just the fuse block inside the vehicle.

Polarity was reversed when jump starting vehicle installed new battery & no power to anything mechanic said fuse got blown.What fuse,where it is located & cost of it.

Hard to say without make, year, and model-but check all fuses in the power distribution box under the hood- ignition, alternator fuse, etc.-all of them, the small ones and the maxi-fuses. All fuses are pretty cheap. If you still have nothing, you may need a wiring diagram to check for fusible links that would be power distributors right off or near the battery. Fusible links work much like a fuse, and most have been replaced by maxi-fuses, but many vehicles have both. If there is a designated main fuse, it should be in the distribution block or box under the hood.

My camry 95 wont start doesn't even turn the switch key light on no power what so ever.... heelp!!!!

It sounds like your main fuse has blown or the power main relay has failed.Check the 40A and 30A fuses in junction block 2, and the power main relay in block 1. See here p10-11

Radio has not worked since I jump started a car,so I wanted to check the fuse for sound system

One of the fuses is located in the fuse panel under the dash. It may also have another in-line filter on the power wire going to the radio

The electric windows on my fiat punto sx 60 have stopped working, we've replaced the switches but nothing has changed, someone said it could be the relay but we dont know where it is, any ideas?

As most problem, make sure you are getting power to the switch. Check your fuses. That should always be the first thing to check. If it's not the fuse, you have a problem in the wireing between the fuse block and the door switch.

My trunk release does not work. remote doesnt work either. theres no power to switch and no power going to release mec. fuse is good. jumped release and it worked. i lost power to it somewere. 2001 grand...

wire may be broken. if you jumped it and it worked you can run anew wire from the switch to the the fuse block where the original wire is. Trying to follow the wire under and inside of the dash will take a lot of time and you will need to take dashboard apart.

Gauges jump around from nothing to working right

It isn't fun but; try pulling and re-plugging any connectors you find, especially under the dashboard. Your description sounds a lot like a 'flaky' connector. Also, if your owner's guide or the cover for your fuses has a description of fuse functions, pull and replace the fuse for 'accessories,' If this supplies the dash with power, it may just be a crusty fuse holder.

2004 ford f150 wont start.take fuel pump out and jumped it ,it wo

fuel pump relay, or the simplest solution check the fuse block to see if you have a blown fuse. Most likely its the relay, but check the fuse block, under the dash and under the hood, maybe you'll get lucky. Good Luck.
