entire car grounds out and everything goes dead when i try to crank it over, i move some wires near the main ground on the battery and everything comes back on. grease it up with WD40 and the problem goes away for a while. ????? i am thinking of re-wiring all the wires near the battery just to be safe. not really sure which one is causing the problem or shorting out when i try to start the car.
