My car died while driving. Had to have it towed back to my place. It's an 88
GTA with the 5.7 engine.
Here are the symptoms :
Turning key to "on" results in absolutely nothing : No guages, no fuel pump
Turning key to "start" results in absolutley nothing. No crank.
Only things that work are :
Dome light. Parking lights. Horn. Electric side mirror adjuster. When I turn on
the parking lights, the dash lights come on. I can move the gear selector
around when the key is in "on" position".
Things that don't work are :
No brake lights.
No turn signals.
No power windows.
No power locks. (Makes click sound only)
I checked all fuses in fuse box. All are OK.
I posted before about this, and everyone said fusible link, but I checked all
(?) the fusible links and they look great. 2 on the battery cable, and 3 right
near the starter.
Could something be fried inside the alt which would cause all these other
electrical parts to not work, even when the engine isn't on ?
