My Sentra has now power to the lights, start, anything, yet the battery is fine


Asked by Dec 01, 2014 at 12:55 AM about the 2010 Nissan Sentra 2.0

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2010 Nissan Sentra and it was working fine until I went to the store and it was completely dead.  No lights, won't start, no dashboard lights, seems completely dead and I can't jump it, but when I pull out the battery and take it to the shop, it's fine.

it sounds like you have a bad ground. check all the ground connecitons where they hook to the engine block and clean and tighten.

Make sure your battery is hooked up properly and the terminals and connectors are free of corrosion.
