Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

When you turn the ignition to the ON position, there is no dash warning lights coming on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
not sure my wife is the one who attempted to start it and she hasnt written anything down.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

What I need to know is if you turn the key to the ON position, if all the dash warning lights come on or not. If not, you could have a poor connection at the battery which can cause the power to go out like this. But I would like to make sure by seeing if the warning lights come on.

Can you let me know?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The battery connection is good. I just checked the battery and filled it last week. No corrosion on the connections.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will be going to the car in 2 hrs and will know more.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

What I mean is I have seen it where if you simply loosen and twist the battery cable back and forth, power could return.

Are the dash warning lights coming on when the key is in the ON position?

Ok.. I maybe outside doing yard work then. But will be back around 4 or 5 pm EST.
