2002 Mazda Tribute: Drove..wont even..Dash lights come..until I turn

Resolved Question:

My 2002 Mazda Tribute won't start. Drove just fine to the store, came out and it won't start, won't even try. Dash lights come on until I turn the key, then they go out. Battery, or worse?

Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

That is probably a bad connection at the battery but you will want to check that the cables are clean and tight. Also the ground. That is considered a voltage drop and here is a link to a video on how to find a voltage drop.
