Check you fusible link. Follow red wire coming off battery and you find it. Will be between battery red wire and alternator. Should be located near or attached to main engine fuse panel. You can test this by making sure battery has some charge in it and read battery with a voltmeter. With car off, touch tester to black on battery and red to wire by alternator. You should get similiar reading. If not, the fusible link is bad and needs replaced.
Thank you very much. i knew it had to be something like tht but didn't know the location. It is my Son's Van and he lives in another town and I can't get there to look for it. Tried to get him to but he did't have a clue. Now I can tell him where it is.
