Ambient temperature stuck on minus 36 and AC will not blow cold air
How many miles can I expect to get out of my 2005 express cargo van? I am the original owner. Moderate driving conditions, regular maintenance.
99 Ford Escort ZX2. Having an issue getting my car to start. Drove home from work a couple weeks ago, and then tried to go to the gym minutes later, and the car wouldn't turn. No power locks, no lighting, and no ignition, even if I connect a jump box, or even leave it connected. I've tested the battery and alternator, and they told me the battery was fine and the alternator is ok except for bad diodes, which they claimed could drain the battery, but that seems like the jump box should work in that case.

I replaced the battery terminals a few months ago when something similar happened, and cleaned the wiring of rust to get them to work, but it did work. Since then, I had the issue once, but just scrubbed the terminals with aluminum foil and they worked without a jump. That didn't work this time, and I went back and did it with vinegar to no avail. When I disconnect/reconnect the terminals, I get power locks, but the car cranks once and shuts off completely (no power locks). Thank you
