Check the large 100 amp fuse at the battery terminal. I bet you zapped it. They are a few dollars from Autozone.

You have to use a 10mm socket and loosen the bolts that old the fuse in. Just pop open the side covers on the 4 fuse holder and you will see the bolt heads.

Where would those be the previous owner relocated the battery to the trunk I'm guessing I will have to trace the wiring.

I thought you were selling it? You have it listed on CL and you just bought it about a week ago.

I but in a new battery and alternator and had no power so I just gave up and then I found this board and got some help and now I am motivated to keep it. I was just overly frustrated and was having buyers remorse after I did all that stuff. The problem ended up being the circuit breaker for the trunk battery so I'm going full speed to get this thing running.

I like simple fixes!

Mike, if you have any other issues, post up and the locals will help you get this thing sorted out.

There's a pretty good crew out here, and we're getting ready to have a meet, you should try and make it there.

Welcome to the board!

From the sounds of it, it might be time for the Saturn alternator swap.
