no power after changing the battery
After changing the battery the car does not want to start. It will crank but will not turn over. It never had a problem until we put a new battery in it. Is there something that needs done after changing the battery?
Check the main fuses in the power distribution box under the hood.
They are all good. We did check those.
Double check your work, make sure you didn't accidentally knock something loose during the replacement. Did you ohm the main fuses? sometimes they can be bad but look good, hairline crack in the link. if that is all good then the engine control system will have to be tested.
And for that a dealer needs to test it?
Check the battery cables for corrossion and cracking. Wiggle the wires and then try to start it. What is the voltage of the battery?
No a dealer does not. Any good shop in your area can do this
If the battery is strong enough to crank the engine, I would look at what might have been knocked loose when the battery was changed. Look at the connections for the main coil/distributor lead or fuel supply line connection.
We put it on a scanner a friend had and it says something about not enough voltage to the fuel pump....so not sure what is going on. Pulls codes P1682 and P0230. The next step i am thinking is just to take it to a shop and hope it wont cost a bunch to get it runnin.
