2004 Dodge Neon
Unlocked car remotely. Inserted key into ignition. Inside lights and indicators behaved normally. Depressed clutch and turned key. All power cut off. No lights, no indicators, no head lamps, no keyless entry. Nothing.
Metered battery showed 12.44V. Removed battery and had it tested at auto store: all good. Installed same battery, keyless entry, internal lights and indicators returned. Inserted key into ignition, depressed clutch, and turned ignition: lost all power as before.
I have disconnected the battery to try 'resetting' the fault, but I get no power from the battery at all. I have checked my battery terminals and grounds. I have checked and metered the fuses and relays under the hood and in the passenger compartment.
Which part of the electrical system would prevent ALL battery power from reaching anything in the car?
have the same problem?
