I can't get my explorer to start, it's not getting any power. It's not the starter, I had that checked, what else could it be?
Do you

Double check battery and connections

Inspect and test all the fusible links and also the ignition switch

Check the battery? You're not getting any power (no radio, lights, etc)? Does it make a clicking sound when you try to turn the engine over?

I checked, and double checked the connections, everything looks fine. The battery is charged, took it in and had it done. There is power going from the battery to the relay switch, I get a spark when I touch a screwdriver to both connections on it but I still have no lights, no power of anykind getting past the battery and relay switch. There is no clicking or noise of anykind when I try to turn it over. Ive called mechanics, gone to part stores, researched online. Everything. I dont have the chilton and I have to special order it which takes 2 weeks, so I am at a complete loss, no one knows what else it could be. I cant find a break anywhere, but there is no power getting to anything, and I cant for the life of me figure out why. It worked great friday night got it home parked it and satrday morning it wouldnt do anything.

You need to bring it in things can get worst if tested improperly in your case lacking electrical experience-

Thanks, I was hoping I could do it myself since money is tight. Can you tell me what could have possibly caused it?
