Bench charge the battery and get it load tested. If battery is okay, get the alternator charge rate checked. You will want to see 13.5 volts minimum. Finally if all these are okay get the starter out and bench tested.

I forgot to mention no head lights. Could the starter wire on starter have anything to do with this? The battery is only six months old and have not had any issues until now. Seems like it comes all of a sudden because it has been doing fine.

It can, you need to check all connections and terminals are clean and tight, corrosion will cause high resistance and this will cause problems.

Hello,

I have found some power distribution wiring diagrams and it looks like fuse "H" in the power distribution center is out.

Here is a guide to help you test it and some wiring diagrams (below) so you can see for yourself how the power circuits work.

Problem solved. Hot wire came off. The one going to the fuse box. When it fell off the end was hidden so it just looked like thats where it was supposed to go. Feel stupid for not noticing before. Thanks a million for your help. From now on you are my go to guys for auto problems. Frank
