Lost all electrical power. Battery is good. Is there a main fuse or breaker. The only lights that come on are the dash lights and the small light on the front fender.

    I have the exact problem as mentioned. I did have my ignition switch get hot and melt as well. I have replaced the ign and ign relay. No blown fuses at all. my next step is to check each wire to find a break or bad connection. The grounds already have been wire brushed and reinstalled. Any advise would be helpful. I will update if I am able to figure this out. Thnx all for assistance

If the main fuse blows, nothing works. Not even the dash lights. Look under the seat for the fuse box. Once you find which fuse is blown, then you can trace out that circuit.

Ride safe

Can a fuse cause my 99 Trooper not to start

Answering for ENGINE will not Crank !
Or the starter motor is SILENT !
Is the IMMoblizer lamp in dash telling you why?
good questions, sure it can.!
all electrics on cars are fused, (cept starter main)
lets for get the engine, (for now)
by no lights? that mean head lights are both dead? (if yes we fix this first) {easy}
head lights work key off, so..... is panic fail, prime failure mode.
if you meant the cluster lamps only, why not say so?

if the HL are out, the battery is dead or its cables are rusted (4 ends)
or fuse blow out in main box.

if the cluster lamps are dead and for sure the CEL lamp? then the ECU has no power, and engine will never run with that dead. or IMMO lamp stuck on.
CEL = check engine light if , out,key on, the ECU has zero power.

the radio is dead , is one more prime failure.
head lights win that argument.. but i'd bet cab fuse box are dead due to PCD box under hood dead.

So, open hood, see the PDC (main fuse box)?
you check battery voltage with neg lead of meter to body metal.
it reads:
12.6 vdc or more rested is a charged battery,.
$10 meter at walfart works.
if not, bingo. bad battery cables or ground. (the cables have 4 ends,and all 4 ends can rust or even be loose)

so next check the voltage in the main box at all main fuses.
i'd bet one fuse has 12v on one side and 0v the other is a clearly blown fuse.(there)
if you need a schematic we have it.ask

the symptoms are lost main power.
the tests are easy.
with any cheap voltmeter every made.
got one?, or must we work blind?
No cranks (is IMMO active?)
no head lamps, fuses blown for them or mains blown
CEL lamp dead in cluster key on , ECU fuses blown
or cluster fuse blown.

from your limited hints, id say them mains are blown.7388ecf3-ec1e-4fdb-b172-b274fca78a06.jpg25917427-q3trmxyjzvqfc2lfsqsrd2xd-5-2.jpg

FL1 is the main fuse.
got 12vdc on both sides if fuse? if not all is dead. the fuse blows, changing out the alternator not pulling battery neg lug(very common reason)

Front windows not working, dimming dash lights

Engine start and run perfect????
head lights all good and bright. with heater fan on?????
front side? windows only? electric window motors all dead or weak?
checked all fuses yet?? THAT BE FIRST!
you have a dead or weak battery.
batter cable lugs all corroded and green?
fuse box damage at engine bay box? check carefully.
for sure its lost DC 12v power, so
its only a matter of measuring it from dash to battery, and finding it.
12.6v at battery rested.
12.6v at all wire on the main engine bay fuse box. or a fuse is blown
or wires to it damaged.
then 12.6v at the cigarette light , key on.
if not find the reason easy with any volt meter.
if battery is good, then you have corrosive resistance in the wire feeds
somewhere. most cars, i can see it before , measure it. just by careful inspections. if not , out comes my $10 walfart meter.
Mines rearlly a Fluke meter, but thats not important.

Lost all electrical power

Look for a main breaker, surprisingly, they are putting them into cars these days. A Chilton or Haynes manual will locate it for you, but it's usually under the hood, will be in a fuse box.

Had it on the battery charger last night hit the light switch, now i have no neutral light in dash or any power. i checked the main fuse its good. are there any circuit breakers to look for. need help...

You dont say what bike this is? However this is a common problem, locate the starter solenoide, here you will find a red plastic cover, remove it and you should find a 30amp main fuse, this fuse is to protect the circuit but it is a common blow while jump starting or charging the battery with the ignition turned on, (tip always connect battery and or charger with ignition turned off, a spark from electrical devices at the battery can cause the battery to explode)

2001 1200 XLC lost all electrical when I hit starter. Battery connections and ground test OK. Bat reads 12.6v. Fuses in fuse box are good but there may be inline fuses or a breaker. I have an electrical...

There is a 30amp circuit breaker between the ignition switch and the starter.The charge wire from the voltage regulator goes to that same circuit breaker. There is also a 15 amp fuse in the fuse box for the ignition circuit. Double check battery cables making sure the contacts are free of corrosion. Good luck.

My 97 Camry has no inside power, no radio, power windows, lights, dash lights, nothing. I changed the ignition switch, and put a new battery in, and there is still no power inside the car. Has anyone else...

There is a fusable link from your battery to everything inside the car. 62468983
See FL Main 3.0W - I believe that is where your problem lies. If all your fuses are good...that is the culprit. Good luck!

Electrical Problems

i suggest to check the main fuses, or breakers. if the battery, starter, and ignition switch are known to be good, then the battery voltage is being lost past the battery either in a main fuse or junction box under the hood. hope this helps.
