06/06/2005 09:40:14   tom. k   I've just put the engine back in my 96, Everything worked fine before removal. Now none of the electrics work, theres no power when the key is turned (no ingition lights) Check earths, battery, coil, volt reg, alternator, (swoped the with spares, not alternator though) could it be the starter motor solenoid? Really don't have an ideas.

Any pointers would be great

If just the ignition, then is the earth strap from the engine to the body OK?

06/06/2005 13:08:50   tom. k   Theres no power to anything! The battery is good even if it wasn't great it should still at least allow somethings to sort of work.

Checked and clean the earth strap, How could the postive connection not be connecte properly?

Really confused!

06/06/2005 17:57:55   mark   Yep check pants too!
