Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. If I am understanding correctly, there is absolutely no power anywhere in the car? Even when you attached jumper cables, there was still no power in the car?
alright. Even if the battery is 100% dead, when you attach jumper cables you should get power in the vehicle. what you have here is either a bad connection or a broken battery cable. First, try disconnecting both the battery cables, negative and positve, from the battery and clean the connections well and re attach. Once that is done if you still have no power, attach the jumpers from the other vehicle to your car. Red to the positive lug on the battery and black to something steel inside the engine compartment like a bolt. let me know what happens please.
If you have zero power anywhere, then This is a bad connection. I am sure. If you have cleaned the connections well at the battery, check the connections at the vehicle on both cables. Make sure all are tight and clean.
you checked that fast?
Check the battery cable connection down on the starter.
You know you should tell us what year, make, model and engine this is and while you are at it auto or manual trans and 4wd or 2wd.
Ok, let's try this then, starting at the battery positive post, using a voltmeter begin testing the voltage drops across each connection, if any is over .2 volts, that will be where the problem is and don't forget the ground circuit as well.
Since you never told us exactly what you are working on we can only give you basic answers. If you want a specific answer, you need to tell us the year, make, model, engine drive ,etc.
Do you still need help with this or not, if not, kindly rate me well so I get credit for the time I spent which is time I could have spent on a customer who paid me.
