The car is still not getting any power at all, I changed out the batterie and still no power.
When I took the old one to get it checked they told me that it only had 10 volts of power so I got a new one.
Took it home and put it in and still nothing... The funny thing is when I put the conector cable on the batterie I could here the power going to the car but nothing was coming on. No lights nothing...

Altornator, maybe...? I know we sad Flinks but I have no way of getting the different set up for that at the moment. Could I change out the old FLink, with a new one from the autoparts store? just woundering...lol

And this has what to do with leaking coolant? Start a new thread!

It has nothing to do with alternator - that only supplies power one the engine is running. In other cases it's the battery.

And if your flinks are like ours, the above are wrong (in the pic) - they are not "loop-back" flinks but go from the black 3-way connector to the battery (3 flinks) and similarly for the white 2-way. (Who wired it that way and why??!)

As I see it, you only have power to your ignition switch but only for the ignition coil, cigar lighters, meters, maybe turn flashers & reverse lights.
Though the main relay for the ECU etc should "click", you will not have power for ECU, ignition, wipers, windows, lights, hazards, room & stop lamps, rear defogger....

The black 3-way to battery should be ok with 3 x 15A fuses.
The white 2-way with a 25A fuse.

IMO it's not worth using the original style flinks - they are out of fashion for a reason. Change to plastics instead...

Where from?
Anywhere - it depends what you want to do.

Read the last page.


If it's too complicated, replace them with the old flinks...
