Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

DO you have a volt meter with you?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I don't
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Without a meter we will not be able to diagnose this. I can tell you all the fuses to check but that would be a weak answer, are you okay with that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I guess I will wait till morning find the closest auto zone and try to make it alt and batteries have lifetime warranty
