Turn the Key and... Nothing
Have been trouble shooting the starting system in my 89 F250. Just had the starter rebuilt and put it back on today. After reconnecting all the cables when I tried to try to start it up, I learned that the key was left in the run position (After removing the starter the day before, I Reconnected the battery leads to test it, and measure voltage on the starter end.) I obviously had to disconnect them when i reinstalled the starter.
Then, Initially I thought the batteries were just dead, tried to jump it and got nothing. Then I pulled out the multimeter, and measured 8 volts off both batteries with key in the off position, but when turned to run the meter reads zero.
Could something have gotten fried with the key left on overnight?
