Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Do the headlights work? What about the dome lights? Does the check engine light come on with the key on for a bulb check?

Expert:  Amedee replied 11 months ago.

Ok, good, now we check the battery voltage, voltage on the fuses and the voltage at the starter with the key in the CRANK position to see where we are losing voltage.

Expert:  Amedee replied 11 months ago.

I suspect you have a blown fuse, fusible link or a bad connection at or after the battery. We just need to find it.
