This is whats supposed to happend if your battery has been disconnected. So first try to clean your battery connections, then look at your ground connections in the engine compartment left side front wing...

Then the next is checking the 2 ground wires on the inner left front wing , if they are bacly corroded. Also measure the voltage on the battery, with engine off, cranking & at idle, and post the outcome of this, it could be a bad battery or a charging problem as well.

Anyone know what that lil wire is going to the battery next to the main batt cable. Its a small 16 or 14g wire with an eye let connector.
