Default I thought I had an Electrical Curse on me. But it wasn't dat

Ok, bonneville is still in WI getting looked at with some issues. Right now I have my aunts truck (she has my car) which is an old F-150. Tonight I was about to go with a few McCo-workers for a little fun and.... the truck won't ******* turn over. JUST LIKE the bonneville. Ugh this pisses me off. My aunt will be more p*ssed since she loves this truck as much as I love my car. Which I love mine alot to call it a her/she so this will have a badddd turnout...

Lonely tonight,
Jake

Check the battery terminals for looseness and corrosion build up.


Does the starter just click?

Check the small slip-on terminal on the starter esp if you get the click on the fender solenoid but no cranking on the starter. I've had this wire burn off once, corrod so bad it wasn't making contact, and even break in half once before finally putting a good fix on it.

I just put this as a mini rant. I can't do any fixing of it right now. Sighhh no friends tonight :(

Oh well. At least I get to put my new floor lamp together to put in the backspace of my new couch (one of those that wrap around the corner)

Yay! (not)

Climb under and slide that connector off & on a few times. That often fixes the connection issue if thats the problem.
