Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everything quit, no lights/ horn/ or anything electrical. Would not turn over. Battery fully
charged. next day started, but shut off  ignition switch shut, tried to start again, and again
not turning over and no electrical. Is this problem in the power distribution box? All fuses
in it look good. How do I check it or bypass it ??

Make sure your battery cables and posts are shiney clean first, if that is not the problem then you are going to have to locate the voltage loss on the main power and ground pathways, could be bad cables.
