Won't start..

Ok, I just bought a '92 5.0 Hatchback a couple months ago. I go out
Tuesday and it won't start. Makes a slight clicking noise when I turn
the key. Got power to the dash, headlights and such, it just won't
start. Today I go out and there's nothing, no power, no clicking just
dead. The Battery is almost brand new and the alternator tests good.
I'm thinking of having the alternator tested somewhere else (Autozone
did it) but wondered if anyone had another idea what might be wrong?

Thanks


Ravnos

Just because the battery is nearly new, doesn't mean it cannot be bad.

I would try a different battery. Clean you battery terminals, and cable ends
throughly, and be sure they are nice and snug.

Sounds to me like something is still drawing current from the battery (other
than the cpu, clock,etc.) when your Mustang isn't running.
