I just replaced the battery in our 04 Yukon. After attacehing battery cables to the new battery, I turned the key to the first position to confirm that I indeed had power (Stereo, door locks, lights etc working fine). As soon as I turned the key all the way to ignition all power was immediately lost throughout the vehicle. It never made a crank sound, it just cut power instantly similiar to a circuit breaker tripping. The new battery test out fine. I removed the battery cables and re-attached and power was restored until I tried to start the engine again at which time a repeat of the power loss occured. Could this be caused by a short circuit in the starter casuing a circuit breaker to shut down power? One Note: The battery cables screw into the side of the battery. The negative cable is snug and doesn't move but the positive moves around some, even though the screw is tight and there apperas to be good contact to the battery.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
