'92 Ford Bronco 302CI battery Wiring
I have a 1992 Ford Bronco XLT with a 5.0L engine. I pulled the battery out a few months ago in the winter time because it was bad, but am just now putting a new one in. I attached the terminals, and have no power anywhere. The wiring is odd though...I am no electrician..but there was a fork shaped, insulated piece of metal running in to the wiring. When touching the two forks together, the engine turns over. Of course, the engine doesn't start because there is no power running through the vehicle, but it has power there. Also, there are two cables with leads on them, that look like ground cables. I tried almost every combination of grounding these, etc, to see if I could get juice into the vehicle (lights, guages, anything!) but no luck. I checked the fuses in both fuse boxes (in the cab and under the hood) and they are all ok. Any ideas? Does that fork-shaped piece play a part in this, or perhaps those two other ground-wire-looking cables? I'm at a loss. Any help would be appreciated!
