1975 Toyota Tercel • 185,000 miles

My car wont start I have changed the battery and the altinator. None of the inside or outside lights work either. What do you think the problem can be?

What is the symptom? The inoperative lights have nothing to do with the generator. Does the starter crank the engine? My guess is it doesn't since the lights also don't work. I'd suspect a bad connection at a battery cable first. Also check the smaller negative battery wire to be sure it's bolted tightly to a clean, rust-free spot on the body.
