engine died while driving tried to restart it it cranks but no lights on dash comes on when switch is turned on still no start acts like its getting any fuel at all -
Answer 1
Did you check your battery? If you get no light on your dash coming on then it sounds like an electrical issue. Check that your battery has correct voltage and that it is grounded correctly. Make sure the fittings are nice and tight and corrosion free. If battery is fine, i'd look into the fuse box. -
Answer 2
poss alt also charge battery and see if that the issue. then have alt tested -
Answer 3
Check the ignition switch if it cranks but you get no dash warning lights. Poss. blown fuse/fusible link wire. -
