and just to add a sidebar, i now cannot persuade the car to start at all. nothing seems to work. I have been trying for an hour, checking all the connections that i could, to no avail. it is not like a dead battery, it is as if there is no battery at all.
regrettably i do not have a multimeter with me, but i suspect I would find no voltage anywhere.
would a dead
cause this kind of problem?
