Re: 1980 Ford Mustang Electrical Probs. HELP!!!
thanks guys. Have been out of town for a few, wasnt so fond of coming back to this problem, but anyhow. Still no progress. I've looked for a fuse panel in the engine compartment, i cant locate it. (scratches head) There is a wire (which has a fuseable link connected) that connects to one of the bigger posts on the starter solenoid, along with the 2 + feeds etc. Could this be it?
On the wiring diagram says there is a fuseable link (wire color yellow) that connects to the solenoid (same wire i speak of above). Could this cause the problem? Would it kill all power to the car, if this fusable link was bad? Says it goes from the solenoid to the alternator.
Im so confused. To think a little a little thing like that can disable a car. Im getting spark off the battery, there should be juice going through the damn thing, but still no power at all. None once so ever. Turn the key, no nothing, no interior light, no cig lighter, no door buzz, no dash lights, again, no nothing. Friggin brake lights dont even work.
GRR I even went out and bought me a chiltons. Doesnt really help when ya dont know what the problems is. And it only speaks of one fuse panel/box, which is located in the car under the dash.
Edit to add. Checked my ground and connections underneath the car. All were cleaned and reconnected.
