Confusing Electrical Problem
Hey guys, I have recently joined the forum because I am helping a friend out with his 1972 Stingray. We had it running about three years ago and there were no problems, but the car has been on stands and not been started in the past three years.
Here is the problem:
I went to go put the battery in and hooked it up, however the dome light didn't go on. I proceeded thinking that the light or fuse might have been bad. I turn the key but no power what so ever (no accessories, no crank, no horn, nothing).
I have worked on cars and am mechanically inclined but this just baffles me.
P.S.: I checked the leads on the starter and they are fine as well as tight. I did notice a burnt/singed wire but it was getting late so I had no time to investigate. I believe that wire might have been a fusible wire but that is just a guess.
I would love to have this beast out of the garage and on the road again so I can post up some pictures!
