I'm going to suggest that you undo the main system ground and with a coarse wirebrush clean the chassis/fender..(the attachment point) of the black 1/0 cable....install a NEW battery and you'll be runnin' smooth with superior electrical connections to ALL electrical components such as fuel pump, fuel injection and ECU....windshield wipers....etc~

you could switch the ignition to the "on" position...to see when all the bulbs illuminate for testing...the CEL light comes on....or the bulb is burnt~
