Double check your connections to the new battery. Is the polarity correct?


As long as the red and black caps were right when I took them off the battery. I show continuity between the pos on the fuse block and ground. It should show 12v. Right?


Went back and looked again and the rubber around the cable terminal wasn't letting the cable contact the battery. Thanks for the help


Always good when you find the cause! Glad you were able to fix it.
