Re: powerless

Make sure your ground from battery is good. Then just work your way back words. From memory: positive battery cable runs to starter. Check that for power at starter. Then purple and yellow? Maybe run to bulkhead on engine compartment side. Use a test loght to check that for power. Keep testing wires as you work your way forward. You can put a test light on each fuse inside the car to check that. I wpuld also try a new battery as well.

Re: powerless

- Charge battery

- Clean battery posts and both ends of battery cables

- Check the wire that goes from the + batt cable around to the front of the radiator support. there is a junction there - clean that

- check and clean the busbar on the horn realy

Re: powerless

Check all the connections on the horn relay. There is a fusible link that you should check that powers the dash. Pull on the wire, if it stretches it is burned out and needs to be replaced.
