My car seems to be completely dead (no dash/radio/lights/ignition/key remote lock) but after testing with a battery charged apparently the battery is completely full. I've tested while connecting to both battery terminals and the further down the cables, cleaned the terminals and checked all fuses, and everything seems to be ok. Could this be some cabling problems down the circuit or could there any other explanation for it?

EDIT: It's a 2003 Honda Jazz. I tested with the battery charger, I am assuming it is impossible to get a false positive unless the battery is indeed charged. The fuses I just looked at them, but I doubt it's a fuse issue as nothing works, they would all need to be fried.

  • How did you test it? – HandyHowie Aug 11 '19 at 21:31
  • Did you check the numerous ground connections that today's motor vehicles implement? There's going to be at least one to the frame, one to the engine block and who knows how many more! – fred_dot_u Aug 11 '19 at 21:45

    That's the fun of finding those earthing or grounding points - you have to look for them... – Solar Mike Aug 12 '19 at 7:48
