Customer reply replied 11 months ago
11.72 volts, nothing works at all, it is push button start and nothing happens when you push the button, no lights, no anything

No, when you go to start the engine, what does the battery voltage DROP DOWN TO?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
there is no change, nothing happens at all
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
there is no draw because nothing is happening, because the push botton has no power

Did you actually check it?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
i am in the car as we speak

Ok, excellent!

Now, lets check the voltage on the MAIN or MAXI fuses when the push button is depressed.
