- Feb 8, 2007Started to leave a friend's house at 11:30pm. I had backed into the
driveway. Car started fine despite cold. Touched the wiper lever to
clear the windshield. Started ahead. At the PRECISE moment I was
going over the curbing between the driveway and road, I quickly
flicked on the lights. Car completely died! No electrics. No
lights. No dash indicators. Nothing. Tachometer needle "flutters"
when I turn the key in the ignition.
Checked all the fuses and relays (with flashlight). Did not see
Brand new battery, about 2 months old new. Checked the connections to
the battery terminals. Seem fine.
It's too cold and dark for any more diagnostics right now. Tired and
First thing I'm going to check is for good ground from battery
negative terminal into the chassis.
Then I think I need to start hunting down shorts.
But I don't know where to begin.
