i would think the problem is with the battery cables

Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 year ago.

from the way you explain,this is the only logical reason not to have power

Expert:  tim's auto repair replied 1 year ago.

you need to make sure that the cables are tight and clean at all four points
