New Battery. Used to start, no longer will
Hello! my 1984 ford ranger 2.3l truck just stopped working this morning. I purchased this the other week and yesterday I replaced the battery, sparkplugs, sparkplug wires, and fuel filter last night.
everything seemed ok, but after driving today, I tried to start it and it made a weird crunching noise. Maybe the starter?
After getting push started, i got it home, but noticed that when i braked, the radio would fade out.
when i parked, I turned the lights on, the truck tried to stall, so I gave it some gas and it back fired. After i turned it off, the truck would no longer turn over, and nothing electrical would turn on. No radio or lights. Maybe a ground or bad connection somewhere could be the cause? Im at a loss at this time. not sure what to do.
Thanks for your help.
