Fuse / battery/non-start

Post by Jegrover1 »



OK - about to go nuts here. Have been mending about a surgery and have yet to get on the road! Have been having real electrical problem. She was sitting on a maintainer for a while and did start for about a day. Then sat sum more. Now when I turn the key the panel either stays dark or when it does light up instead of the started engaging you can hear buzzing for about a 1 second burst and hear the solenoids and the mechanical switches under the seat clicking around. Have checked fuses on both the right hand and left hand, the 3.5 amp fuse coming off of the battery and the 7.5 on the starter relay and the bar fuse on the right side. Don't know if there are other fuses hiding somewhere or how to test the mechanical switches under the seat (The Qe something or others). Like I say, the dashboard lights will light up now and then and then not at all and clicking and buzzing can be heard all over the fuses and switcthes (under the seat), yet all fuses good. Any more ideas?
