Make sure you hooked up all the battery cables. And that they are all clean and tight. Some vehicles have a couple positive connections hooked to one battery connector. Make sure all of them are making good connection


Also did you check all your lighting fuses? Did you happen to short your wrench out on the body of the vehicle while hooking the battery up?


Yes check fuses and got clean good and tight connection to the battery and no to the short my wrench question. I read some where that it could be the CTM (central timer module). Any thoughts?
