Question type: Maintenance & Repair

'75 blazer has been extremely dependable, battery died, replaced it, still wouldn't start so I
pulled the starter and had it tested, lagged so I replaced it and now it still won't start.  No
idea where to go from here.

check for spark, could need new cap and rotor .

thanks, not sure if hubby did that, we have replaced the battery cables, new starter, altenator is new, new battery and the headlights won't even come on....going to try replacing the ignition switch but if that doesn't fix it then we have no clue so any help would be appreciated.


Sounds like bad connection to the power distribution, check all the cables from the battery. Old connections break off or just don't allow the amps necessary.
