1997 Ford Mustang - Completly Dead! No power getting into the car! Battery is fine

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  1997 Ford Mustang - Completly Dead! No power getting into the car! Battery is fine

Hey Yall,

I have a problem with one of my cars. My mustang went completly dead today. It was working fine. I pulled into the garage, turned it off, and walked away. I cam back 20 min later and tried to start and it didn't work. Nothing. Gave the noise like a dead batt would. So I hooked up my batt charger to it (yes, i hooked it up right). Needle went to 6, and came down to 2. So, Battery is charged.

The car is now completly dead. No power to lights, horn, anything!

Any ideas?

Clean and tighten battery terminals. Check grounds. Give it another whirl. :thumbs:

Well, I would replace the battery cables. Shadetree experience. :2cents:

it would seem odd that the car would not start with a freshly charged battery if it were the alternator, but ya never know. Also have you thought about it being a starter problem? Just some ideas.
