Default CHARGING SYSTEM PROBLEMS

Hey guys, I am having some probs with my bonne'....lately (twice) I would try to start my ride and when I turn the key "nothing"...when I open the door no lights, chimes, or flashing security light....no crank....

I went to AZ to have the system tested, and good batt, good alt, good diode...

To start engine, I had to put my batt charger on to seemingly "charge batt"....

AZ guy said it might be Ignition Module shorting....Well you know how electrical stuff goes...(could be many things)....Anybody ever had similar problems...???

Thanks in advance for your input....

Scrub the battery terminals with a wire brush. Scrub the cables, and in-between the cables to get the corrosion off.

I agree with Fuddy. Jseabert had the same problem with his 93 SSE, and that'* all it needed. A little TLC cleaning.

Start by scrubbing them all, then we will move on to the next possible source.
