Re: need help!! no electrical
A couple things:
Did the wire start to rub or deterioate and was against the radiator support and shorted out which would make it completely burn. A dead short.
Was it a bad connection from age but usually just melts the terminal off. Which is usually a old connector or bad crimp.
Do you have a 10 amp battery charger? I would put the charger on the terminal block on the radiator support,, not the battery. This will power up the car. If you have a problem / short it will drag the charger down because it only puts out 10 amps. If you hook the battery back up it puts out enough amps to melt the harness if you have a short.
Once the charger is on start checking your circuits like, lights, horn, radio, blinkers, flashers. Most of these have fuses so if there was a problem with them it would blow the fuses. The headlights are not fused. If everything checks out ok then install a new wire with good crimps. Before you start anything put your hand on the wire and make sure it is not getting hot. If it is you have a problem still.
Do you have a meter and DC amp probe?
