So I was driving one day back and forth quite a bit, the car has been treated like badly before I got it fair enough. I've done all the maintenance on it to try and catch it up, however it just quit on me, cluster froze, engine light went off, only lights on now are the battery and seat belt. I've charged the battery and made sure its good. It had an check engine light for a while but that went off. There is no fuel, I've replaced the fuel pump relay, checked the fuses, replaced the fuel pump, replaced spark plugs, and the whole distributor, and replaced the fuel filter, I don't know what else to do. I don't believe there is any spark either. Any ideas?

Hello,

It sounds like the load reduction relay has gone out. To be sure here is a guide to help test it and the relay location as well:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
