Changed water pump. Car wont start. I arcd out alt hot wire. Would that cause it not to crank over. Battery and starter are new. Ran fine till then.

They are. Have an ohm meter. How can they be tested without unbolting them?

If you can access both terminals, test for power on both of them.

1 I can see has a connection in the fuse itself. The other looks like the the hairlike connection is gone?
