Unhappy I need help I have no power in my cab.

About a week ago my brother hooked up the battery wrong in my 1996 Nissan hardbody. There was a little spark that came from the positive side of the battery that has the fusable links. They have power both of them. My headlights come on. When I try to start the truck all I hear is a small click. All the relays under the hood have power but the fuse box inside the truck has no power at all.. Iím stuck I need help with this plz

Do you have power after the fusable links? Have you checked other fuses? Have you tried to pull codes to see if your ECM is OK?

Something burned up somewhere. Go to your fuse block.and check for incoming power. If you have it you know the issue is at or after the fuse block. If you don't you get to trace things back.

I believe there is more than one fusable link. Checked them all?



Got a copy of the FSM?

pull the links apart at the batt and check every wire.on the links.....then clean em really good, put em back on and check the fuse box side of the links. if you have power there then start chasing the wires. Mine are fussy as hell.

Hooking up the battery backwards usually results in a burned up fusible link.

There should be 4 fusible links of of your battery post. You probably turned a couple of them into dust.

You may have blown a relay, one of those little blue boxes under the black cover near your battery.

Or a fusible link. They can look okay on the outside, but be blown inside.

No FSM? See my signature below.
