Question about Easy Quick Auto Jumper Recharges Vehicle Battery Without Jumper Cables
At noon the truck started and ran just fine, turned it off, then went to start it at 3:00 p.m. and nothing. The batteries have been replaced and so has the altenator.
It sure sounds like you have a short somewhere, and BTW, good info. Not many people give much info, and without that you are shooting in the dark. The fact that several of your gauges don't work is very telling. Have you had like a hitch or new aux. fuel tank put on recently? Sometimes people don't watch when they install such items and they pinch wires and the problem doesn't show up for a while. As the insulation on the pinched wires sometimes take a while to wear through. Also I hope you are just taking off the negative(black) battery connections. You should always hook the positive first, then the negative. And with the key off you should not get any arcing/crackling sound from the connection when you hook it back up. If you do(which I'll bet you do) it means there is some circuit that is shorted or a relay is closed when it's not supposed to be. It's all about finding out what is hard wired(that means it's not wired through the key switch, it has the potential to be on all the time, but won't draw any current if the insulation in the wiring is ok, and the truck is off). Electrical probs are the worst. good luck.
