I have a 1984 Fiero SE 4 cyl.
I had just moved and drove the car about 300 miles, right when I go to my destination, it died. Battery was good and the lights would come on but the engine wouldn't even crank. got it towed somewhere i could work on it and I had just finished replacing the starter ( I just got a new starter from a fiero I found at a salvage yard ) as that was the only thing I think it could be. With the new starter in, I had charged the battery and was reading a good 12.24 volts, but when I went to start the car, not even the lights would turn on. it's as if the battery wasn't even in the car, but its hooked up correctly and has a good charge with it. Before I put the new starter in, I didn't have any issues getting any of the lights on, but the starter shouldn't have anything with getting the lights on right?
any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
***Update: found the issue. Turned out to be a bad ground wire, just replaced it and we are back up and running!***
