So i just recently had my ignition starter replaced, it was fine yesterday, when i went to start it up today, it was all dead, no dome lights, nothing. I tryed jumping it, it still did not work, could it be a fuse? Thanks for all the help.

re: Recently replaced starter, no "juice". It may be a "fusible link". I doubt it though. Why did you replace the starter? Check the battery ground cable/terminals, Disassemble and clean-off things. Clean the battery. Don't underestimate "coincedental" of collateral damage to other electrical componets. Check the wire routing to the starter, perticularly at the starter or if it passes under or behind any brackets/accessories. Usually if there is a "pinched" shorted wire you may get some smoke(yikes!), not always. Lasdtly who replaced the part, take it to them, let them figure it out. If thats not possible re-replace the starter only this time buy the new expensive one with the "forever" warrenty(if you didn't), there is a difference.

well if it worked for a day afer you worked on it and then the next day was dead you should get it charge you bat and get it running then disconect the bat over night ...hook it up in the morn and see if it starts if the bat is dead then you know it is your bat if it starts then you know it is electrical so then i would check the aternator somtimes the voltage regulator can stick and drain the bat.
