My '94 mazda b4000 recently lost electricity to the cab and the engine won't turn over.
I will get in, the seatbelt beeping will start, then that will stop. I will put the key in the ignition and nothing happens.
I put a voltmeter on my battery and its registering 12v (which is a bad but usable battery i think).
I checked the under hood fuses and all look good, but i have no way of knowing if the relay's are good
The under-dash fuses are also mostly ok, one was burned out, but i replaced it and nothing helped.
I also tried to jump start it, and nothing came on in the cab and the starter didn't turn over, although i only tried for a few minutes before deciding that i would have seen some lights come on by then.
What else can i check? I need it running to get it to the mechanic :(
edit: As of this morning, if you let it sit, the dash will get power, and the radio and heater will come on if you turn the key a bit. Once you try and engage the starter, you will hear a brief click (doesn't even sound to me like it turned over all the way) and then everything will die for a few minutes again
edit2: I have charged the battery (currently reading 12.8v up from 11.8v) and it has not changed the situation.
