hey guys, i have a slight problem with my 98 zx2
i have not been driving it alot this winter, so when it got down to -15 (give er take a few) the last few nights , the battery went dead. but thats not the problem, i had the jump box hooked up and it did not seam to be enough so i thought it did not have a good connection and i had my buddie move the clamps around well he must not of had one on and i went to go start it and POOF.... no power what so ever, no lights on the dash, no dome light, nothin. first thought blown fuse.....
i looked at the fuse block under the hood and im 98% they were all good, looked at the ones on the drivers side under the dash, they looked good.
im going to go look again in the morning caused the flashlight was crap too....
any ideas guys?
thanks a ton

ok so i checked the battery terminals and they were clean as could be and tight,
it was to dam cold out to do much more and the 4 inches of snow we were getting did not help matters out much.....so till tomarrow

If you have a manual on the vehicle check to see if there is a fuseable link in the system from the positive battery terminal.
Sorry I presently do not have access to a wiring diagram for your vehicle.

i have been looking all over for my haynes and cant find the dang thing..
from memory , i know there is one main fuse under the hood thats held in by a bolt of some sort. but beyond that i have no idea where to go, i may go buy the book again..... may have to i mean

IT WAS AN INTERNAL PROBLEM WITH THE JUMP BOX ! so after i threw the box at the wall , i just jumped my car off with cables and bingo. so all i have to do is buy a new battery cause it wont hold a charge at all now .
