My father-in-law studied the manual and hooked it up correctly. We had lights and radio, but it would not turn over. His dio was a corroded starter. They use a spray down here as well as a bio green salt. I wander if letting this sit for two days caused it. Hmmmm..... Thanks Dan. I'm going to call my mechanic to see if he can assist me with a closer look... Thx a bunch, I as well believe its corrosion. My father-in-law checked the battery light-OK, checked the terminals that we could see-OK, and we tried to jump it- not ok. Did not turn over, but dome lights came on and the console went crazy. I got nervous and told him to disconnect and the car went back to the same thing over again... I'm thoughtless at the moment and a little pissed, Mom and I are dirt poor right now. She is laid off and pregnant. I just started a new job, after be laid off as well. Can't afford to fix it if its a big fix. I hope its the terminals. Wish me luck.
Once again the problem is the car won't turn over and the swishing sound comes from the console as well as the fuse box, located next to the vented battery.
Light on battery is good, termnals around battery and the posy jump terminal under the hood id good as well.
While it drove, the voltage ran up to 14.5 - 15, in cpu on mode the gauge ran 12 straight.
I think that if it was a terminal it would be the ground. I know because when I installed my last radio. If you took of the ground the radio did wacky things
