Should be an easy fix. Not much electrical there. If you left the battery in all winter it could have froze and is just bad now. Check your fuses under the dash. Do you have head lights or dome lights?


No lights at all


All power is off


Have you checked all of your fuses? If none are blown I would try a different battery. You should have headlights and dome light power. The battery has to be spent.....


Yes, battery was problem however after I put new battery in, as I was connecting the battery the car attempted to start. No key in ignition, no

Now I can't get the battery connected without the car trying to start. Confused now. Plenty of battery power


Sounds like the starter is stuck "ON". Try rapping on it with a hammer and see if it will retract. Then hook up the battery again. If it keeps trying to start, replace the starter. I doubt that your ignition switch is stuck in the "ON" position.
