Did you check the battery voltage, what is it?


well we did not but it is a new interstate battery and know that doesn't matter that you can get those bad we took the battery out of my daughters car and it is fully charged and still get nothing

Tom Demyan

Possibly a grounding issue or faulty ignition switch is my guess.

Hi, Given that things were OK before the terminal change, I would go back to that point and check that they are conducting current.
