Hey guys, I have a weird problem if anyone might be able to help.

Started a couple of days ago. My car wouldn't start. Luckily I was outside a auto shop so got a new battery. The old battery terminal plug had come loose. After a few tries, car started fine and got home.

Yesterday morning, went to drive. Few hundred meters from home the whole car just shut down, no power to anything. Checked battery and everything was connected.

Got car home, replaced the fuel and ignition relays but still doesn't work. On accessories, cruise control unit flashes. Dash lights don't all come on, doesn't indicate fuel, oil, battery. Try to start it, but exclamation light thing comes on. Put parkers on, the engine will crank but not start. I can't hear fuel pump on accessories.

There are many different things that keep happening but I have no idea where to start. Fuel pump relay clicks on and off really quickly sometimes and after I try to start the car, if I put the keys to off the fuel pump is on.

Any ideas appreciated. Sounds like one big electrical problem ffs.

Check that all your earth wires are connected at the battery.Cheers Kevman

Check all the earths going to the battery terminal. I think there should be 3 wires & 1 cable. Also check or replace the accessory relay. Another problem can be the ignition switch. Check all the above out.

sounds like dodgy batery terminal issue, either the block to the battery or the wires to the block, had exact same and more demons from that. having a vent above all the vital electrical components doesn't help my cause though.



Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution.
