Are you sure the battery's not cactus? Maybe you have a broken Fretz! Like those Gogo's.

wrong, there is continuity.



You might be getting feedback through the earth for the instrument globes.
Have you tested across the battery terminals?

If you're getting nothing at all, it's got to be a bad connection, a main fuse, or a dud battery.

This car is starting to get to me; Lee, I feel your pain.

This morning I was supposed to take the car down to the exhaust place to get a proper reducer fitted. Turned the motor over about four times to get oil pressure up and stopped. Then went to start her and nothing- would not turn over, zilch. ‘Hmmm, bit odd’, I think. Well, it was more than just not starting; I have no voltage anywhere- not even the interior lights work. This car is possessed!

Have checked the fuse block and all fuses are fine. Checked the wiring from the positive side of the solenoid and it is all as it should be. The only interesting thing I have found so far is that if I remove the shorty fuse in the middle of the fuse block, for the instruments, and test continuity across the two now air-gapped terminals, I was expecting to see an open circuit-wrong, there is continuity.

Steering wheel is now off, blinker stalk removed and I am squeezed under the dash- again! Geoff where are you !

Medic has given some things to try and I welcome any other suggestions. The fact it was turning over this morning and the next instant it has no power at all has me buggered.


You will see continuity across those terminals (and most others if the appropriate switch is on).
A fuse is simply a week/sacrificial link in a circuit.

I would personnaly remove both battery terminals, give they a good scrape or rub with coarse sandpaper then refit and tighten, all this after first putting a meter or test lamp across the battery.

Mate you have put so much into this car it dosnt have a chance of beating you. Chin up anf have one of these Drink

Like I said Ian, make dam sure the battery is good and as Nassi states make sure the terminals have good contact, if you are not sure, piss the battery off and use the one out of the red car as it is a known quantity. If all else fails ring the Nuts and see if he will do a road side service call, ya can't not take it to the show tommorrow. Otherwise you won't be able to park next to me and Nuts in the 67 class(which we all know is the best class)

Thanks guys your advice was spot on. The saga ending is as follows...

8.30p
Car is back together (am getting pretty good at dash installs if anyone needs a hand). I confirmed all the wiring is as it should be. After a call to Medic (rather apt in this case) and an email from Nuts (who is correcting the throttle spring location-but that is another story) I put the ‘new’ battery on charge. After a couple of hours on charge the green ‘Good’ indicator got no greener. I connected everything back up and noticed a strange glow on the fence- “shit, those are the headlights”. Seeking to seize the opportunity, I jumped in and tapped, ever so slightly, the interior dome light cover- on she came. Did I mention the possession theory?

Connected the ignition switch back up, yep, had that sucker in a few pieces, inserted the key and she turned over. The ‘new’ battery is now resting quietly in an adjoining backyard after bouncing back to earth. If you live in Curlewis Street, sorry if I nearly hit your dog- you can keep the battery.

Hey Ian...., now I realise that battery of yours is a new one, give Greg a call and take the car over and get him to load test it, he is a genuine guy and, I'm sure if it fails the test there should be no problem replacing it.
Otherwise it looked a million bucks at the show today, just hope you didn't need a jump start to get home.
Cheers,
Medic

Pink Bits drew a lot of attention there today Jacko. Lots of oohs and ahhs. Did anyone take a pic or were we all to busy hanging shit on the toorana boys?

Hi Nuts
No, didn't take any photos- had the camera but no photos. It would have been better in the sun as then you can really see the fleck in the paint. I really liked the girl who came up and said to H, "I really like this car, I think it is the best mustang here"

Still a few undiscovered pink bits, BTW.

Started fine for the journey home and when I got home, turned it off, let it sit for a few minutes and she started fine. It might be starting to loosen up- Lee there is hope...

For those who were not there, we arrived and were directed into a spot amongst the trees. It turns out that the car next to us, D & C's, drove through some trees to his parking spot. Unfortunately he ignored his wife's advice about 'no, it is not wide enough' and scraped the wheels arch molding on said tree trunk. He was fairly philospohical about it as he said that was the same side the roo ran into the other night, knocking the previous molding off!

Cheers
Jacko

Photobucket is playing up- again. Hope this copy and paste works

OK, so it didn't

I have tried adding an attachment but that does not seem to work either. Might have to wait until photobucket decides to work again

got it working tonight
