1990 Nissan 300ZX 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 170000 miles
I installed an after market radio in my Z and everything worked fine. Then I tried to install an amplifier for a subwoofer. The wiring was left from the previous owner who had an amplifier, so I did no re-wiring whatsoever. Unfortunately I didn't disconnect the negative cable from the battery before I connected the power (12v) wire running from the amp to the positive terminal of the battery and there was a small spark when I connected that wire.
Now the car wont start; it won't even turn over (crank). There is full power to everything. The radio works, headlamps, windows, everything. Its similar to when when you turn the key on a car that is standard but you haven't pushed the clutch in. Everything is lighting up on the gague cluster just as it normally would.
