1996 has no electricity after winter shutdown

Truck was running well last fall, Shut it down for the winter and now I get no power. Battery is fully charged, connections and grounds are good but no electricity getting to any accessories. Inside lights don't go on, nothing is happening when I turn the ignition key. All fuses are good. What next?

Hardly seems worth changing the lock cylinder, since it is not that easy.
Just be more careful turning the ignition off.
Put in an ignition indicator light on the dash if you have to.

SOURCE: 95 GMC ignition system doesn't power

check the condition and check for power at the actual ignition switch at the bottom of steering column and the rod from the key switch that engages it. if your lucky the switch may just have come loose, but more often then not, there shot.

Try another starter and also try turning the crank bolt with a ratchet and socket to make sure that the crank isn't frozen in place. Do not leave the keys in the car when doing so. You don't want anyone messing around in the truck when trying that!

The car was being driven and died. It turns over but wont start, and doesn't go into gear. Windows quite working and radio and clock don't come on. Buzzing sound from air bag mode.


Sounds like a power supply issue. Make sure the battery is fully charged and the charging system is working properly. If the ECM senses low battery voltage it will shut down different parts of the electrical system in order to maintain a constant power supply for the necessary electronics

Which fuse will turn my clock off in my 2000 Toyota Tundra?


clocks use next to no power ( a 12 volt clock will run off a dead flat battery) Check the system for a leak some where else. ( glove box light, boot light . relays etc)

Electrical problem on 1996 Dodge Dakota


It will drain at a rate of 21Watts X 2 = 42Watts at 12Volts = 3.5Amps. If you have an 70 Ah battery that is 20hours to totally flat from fully charged.

sounding like a failed auto shutdown relay... as you probably know, it shouldn't take a full minute to get pressure, should be instantaneous..

Doors were shut last fall and we cant open them - how do we get the key lock to relase and open? the Key turns but no clicking etc.. have to get door open to work on it so whats the best way


Are they electric door locks? If so the battery might be dead.

Manual locks.....Maybe try and spray some lubricant in the lock cylinders, and work the key.
