We have a 1976 Dodge D300 pickup that has no power inside the cab. It started fine, ran for a minute but died (it was cold) when I attempted to restart it, everything is dead-no ignition, no lights, no radio. Everything electrical inside the cab has no power. The battery is new and fully charged and there is power at the starter under the hood. At a loss where to look!

We need to start at the power source, the battery. If it is fully charged, check to make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. Also, make sure the ground to the engine block is clean and tight. Also, make sure the battery cables are in good condition and not corroded with acid which could cause a break in the electrical flow.

Let me know what you find.
