Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving down the road, vehicle shut down without
warning. All the gauges are stuck in the same
position. The vehicle is completely dead. I
disconnected the battery hoping to reset the
computer. Still nothing. Any ideas or answers?

A catastrophic failure such as this (no lights, wipers, horn, etc.) is going to be battery related. Check the battery cable connections, at both ends. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Also look at the underhood fuse box (if you have one) for a main, usually 100 amp fuse. I'f it's blown, replace it and see what happens. If the new fuse blows, there's a short that needs to be fixed by a pro. Something that blows a 100 amp fuse is a serious problem!! HTH. -Jim
