Lost all electrical power
no headlights,no radio,no anything?
Nothing! Son drove it to Wal-mart to get grocery' sand them came out to a truck that would not start. I went buy to look at it (he is at a nearby college) and unlocked the car and power seat, locks and lights all work. Put the key in the ignition and everything goes dead. Gauges, locks, lights everything. Battery is 6 months old. Weird?
so you have power enough for lights,etc.; but, when you try to start it it all dies? before jumping to hooking up another battery .....tell me what happens when you turn the key just to run [not start] with the headlights & radio on.
Don't know for sure? Got in after unlocking the door and adjusting the power seat put the key in the ignition and tried to start. After that the power went completely dead. Nothing. No lights no power seats nothing. Then hooked up cable to see if it's the battery and still no lights absolutely nothing. That tells me something is shutting the power to the entire ethical once I tried to start it. Have had the truck since 2005 and nothing like this has ever happened before. Bizarre??
could be just the ground strap broke loose, take a look
My 85 f250 is doing the same thing. New battery, & new starter solenoid. Turn the key on after sitting for hours and there will be dash lights .. then turn the key and hear a click then nothing.....no lights, no clicks, nothing.
2000 f150 v6 4.2 lost power while driving try put jumper cable on it but spark
Check ur hot wire from the battery to the starter for any corrosion whats happeni g is its allowing enough juice to run light etc. But not enough to crank i bet thats the problem
