1600 went dead??


Recommended Posts

ok went for a cruz in the 1600. 10 minutes into the drive came around a sharp turn, and had to stop pretty fast because of a car turning, came to a stop and then car died no electrical at all. got out pushed it onto the side of the road, popped the hood and began to try and figure it out. looks like the batterie has no strap to hold it in place, and the positive side turminal touched the body of car apon fast stop and shorted car out. i wiggled it back into place stuffed a bike tire rubber to hold batterie in place. cheched wires to starter and bang she started up. i started to drive her home and temp gauge is ticking like a blinker and pulseing like a heart beat? any ideas or has my power serge brang my car to life! lol

First get that battery tied down properly. Second check all youyr grounds. It sounds like the instrument panel needs to have the extra ground added to it. On the back of the instrument panel there are two round brass nuts. Make up a ground wire from the nuts to the ground stud on the heater box. G
