Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry your having this problem
are you 100 % sure both battery cables are clean and tight at the battery ?
even removing both cables and sanding them down with sandpaper or a scotch pad then reconnecting both cables clean and tight it still is dead ?
does the horn work ?
do you have a multi meter on hand ?
is the big power wire bolted to the under hood fuse box showing 12 volts at it ?
can you check and make sure the negative ground cable passenger side lower front of the block is clean and tight ?
with no horn working we are not getting power from the battery to the under hood fuse box or the battery ground is not good at the battery or the engine block G105
test what i said to test
i said how to in my last post
let me re send what i said to do
ok if that big power stud / connection that the big power wire from the battery comes from shows NO volts then either the negative battery cable is not clean and tight at the engine or the battery or the positive battery cable is bad between the battery and the under hood fuse box or bad connections at the battery since the battery tests good for volts and amps and for any bad cells
there is nothing else to cause that main power wire at the under hood fuse box to show no volts
at this point then the big wire from the battery to the under hood fuse box is bad
nothing else will stop power from getting from the battery to that under hood fuse box
or try a big wire temp from the positive battery to the under hood fuse box and see if you get power power back
if you do that cable is bad
the big one off the under hood fuse box follow it to the battery
it comes off the positive battery cable and runs to the under hood fuse box
if that is the one that runs from the battery to the under hood fuse box then yes that is the wire
most local autoparts stores sell them or can get you one
but i would test yours and start at the battery and see where along that cable it is bad
it could even have a bad connection where it fuses into the battery terminal end area
yes start at where it meets the battery and keep going down a few inches and make a small pierce into it to be sure to get to the inside of the wire and check for volts
but it does not light up at the under hood fuse box where it connects to it
there has to be a bad connection where its bolted to the under hood fuse box or something like that at the under hood fuse box since you said it showed 0 volts there
and the horn does not work ?
if not can you have the battery tested for amps and volts and for any bad cells
this battery may have volts but might have low or no amps or a bad cell it it
Strange. No starting I expected. But the horn is odd. I wonder if there is an issue in the dash then? No sending units no where close to similar.
Sorry, I am not sure how that reply got in there, the one about the horn. We are always working to improve the site and sometimes there are glitches. The reply about the sending unit is valid, as is my proposal to talk on the phone.
