    Default No electrical power / 1999 Chevy Suburban

    I have a 1999 Chevy Suburban with a 350 engine. When I went to start it today it has no power including no lights, electric door locks, etc. I took out the battery and charged it fully and there is still no power to any part of the system. Thanks for your help.

    No power to anything? Check the battery ground?

    Fusible link? Check for power at the starter? Using a voltmeter start at the battery work your way to the starter and then the fuse panel to identify where power is lost.

    Is it a fairly new battery? I know I have tried to charge a bead battery before with no luck no matter how long I left the charger on it. Just a thought

    Being a technician myself I would subscribe to this theory myself. Chase power back starting at battery.
