Enter your question.I have a 95 fordWindstar and we just put in a new battery and it ran good for 2 days and then on the third day it was completly dead. We jumped it and it started right away except you have to leave the cables on it for it to stay running, if you take the cables off then the fuel gauge and rpm gauge go up and down and then the engine chugs and dies. Then the battery is dead again, what is the problem?

**No crank at all/nothing/nada when key is engage to starting position

Could be a blown fusible link, the starter, starter relay, park and neutral switch/transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery condition and connections are good. Note: If it doesn't apply disregard.

Also check the alternator's current output and do a battery drain test
