Q: my nissan truck has no power on 1997 Nissan Pickup (D21)

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
i had the front end hit and the radiator needs to be removed and replaced after i get it to the frame shop i used plastic weld to stop a leak where the plastic broke off at the top so what happened next is that i drove a further distance and there was a pin hole leak that sent radiator water onto the batery terminals so i removed and replaced them and redid the grounds and then got rid of the relays on top of the positive side of the battery and straight wired from the wiring harness. I have voltage across the battery and after the batery and to the starter and alternator i checked the fuse panel and no blown fuses however i dont know if one of the four relays above the fuse panel box are blown I have no power still and get no lights on at all so i know its not a starter or alternator problem it has to be electrical since i HAVE nothing at all perio when i put the key in the ignition i have nothing no lights etc everything is dead

can anybody help me out, thanks or call me 2562952051

First verify what the four relays are for. This should give you a more positive direction to go from there. Next is the location where the collision was done. Inspect for any damage to wire harness that may route in this location. Be sure to have positive voltage at all points of the ignition switch as well as good ground contact. Make repairs if necessary. Overall don't forget to inspect to check battery engine block ground cable for clean tight contact to flow load correctly and efficiently. If nothing works recheck where you've made repairs at battery positive terminal because them extra harnesses (white wires) that had the relays are your main feed to the IP cluster and elec.junction box. Lastly if you experience driveability issues from there is all about the ECU (Engine Control Unit)! Thank for reading and choosing Repair Pal!!
