Sounds like you have a bad connection at the battery. Try wiggling the cables.

Look for a rd “T”handle it may have a power cut off switch to keep from draining batteries. Try to follow the positive cable from the battery it should point in the right direction but the switch can physically be installed anywhere on the vehicle. Or the top of your batteries have colored lugs or knobs on top the post. They may be switch style that disconnect the power you have to google them to understand how they function

No power means no connection between the battery and power panel. All you can do is check the connection on the battery POSTS. Clean them both well and make sure they are tight. If still no power, check to see if there's a power switch in the hot cable that's open. if it's closed and no power, open it and clean all contacts. Close it and check power. If still no power, it has to be in the connection at the power/fuse box. Pull the screws holding the power box in and check power from the battery at that connection. Be sure it's clean and tight and you should have power after that is done. If still no power, and you've cleaned, tightened, and checked power at every connection from battery to fuse panel, it will now have to be the main fuse blown or a dirty connection right there. You've done all checks and all is done, you should now have 12 volt power in the motor home. If you turn the key switch on and there's power, and none when key is off, I'd have to have the motor home in my presence to find the problem. I have 4 motor homes and they all work fine. And I did the electric on them. Now if you turn the key on and there's no power to anything in the motorhome, even the lights, then the wire on the relay under hood and behind the right headlight is either faulty, connected the wrong post, or the wire is mot connected at all. Check that relay with a test light with the switch off and on.

SOURCE: won't charge the battery

What you would need to do is to have the battery leads checked to see if it is producing the right amount of current sufficent enough to charge battery. This can be done with a diagnostics tool usually at your local auto repair store.This is make sure that your alternator is working properly.Then you need to make sure leads are securely tightened to battery terminals. Leads must be free of dirt and corrosion to ensure proper bonding. You can clean these with a small wire brush. Good luck

You must verify the main power cables to ground( -) and another to fuse box. If the lights not work, after you changed the battery and doesn't light anything in control panel( board), one of that cable is
interrupted.

SOURCE: changed starter, now no power. battery is fully charged.

While you're down there inspecting the connections to the starter,try backing the bolt out the wires are connected to, and clean where the starter touches the housing so it's nice and shiny and the bolt where it touches the housing so you can get a good ground, I've had problems with that in the past, maybe you could also try attaching a few ground straps from the engine to the body of the car or the frame the more grounds the better electrical connections you'll have

I own a 91 Mercury ( ford) Capri convertible. I went to start it and it turned for a second then died. All power to the car died instantly. There is no lights no radio no lighter no instrument light no...


Has to be a cable connection issue of some sort. Check the other end of the battery cables, either the ground connection to the chassis, or power connection to the under hood fuse box. Could be that one of the battery cables has broken inside the insulation yet the connector looks good. Try using a cheap ohm-meter to see if there is a break in either cable ...keep looking!

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable that will not start. When I turn the key it does nothing, and I have already changed the starter. Any ideas on what it may be?


need more info.

Does the engine crank over?

Do the headlights work? If not, jump start it with jumper cables. Let the car sit for 15 minutes with the jumper cables connected so it can partially charge the battery of your car. Then try to start it.

Check the battery cable connections and clean them too.

Sounds like you may have bad battery make sure your battery is getting the charging voltage of 13,8 volts or higher check it with a volt meter and see if the alternator is working right I've gotten bad alternators one can never be to sure than elminate that problem and move onto the battery make sure its good. it should have 12.6 volts or higher after it has been fully charged or you think its charged . than last check your relays and your fuses make sure there all working good luck

I have a toyota corolla and battery is fully charged no power


Sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables check the connection to both cables at both ends and I personally would make sure that i cleaned the main engine ground (where the negative wire from battery connects to engine). Good luck!
