New GPR, now no power anywhere

97 7.3, no power what so ever, just drove it for about 30 miles then shut it off and went to start it again, the WTS light did not come on then the interior lights flickered and now nothing on the truck has power, fuses are all good, has a new starter and I put a GPR in it 3 days ago, battery terminals were cleaned a couple weeks ago, has anyone else experience this?

Have you tested your batteries? Through them on a charger and get them charged up all the way see if that helps. Powerstrokes take a lot of juice to turn over

I had to replace my batteries just last week, tested good, wouldn't start my truck if it didn't fire right away. jumping was impossible unless I had big gauges jumper cables and another powerstroke jumping off of both batteries. Even then I'd be lucky to get enough of a charge to start it. Do you have a voltmeter or anything to test the batteries to make sure you got juice

Try taking your jumper cables, connect them to the truck, touch them together and see of it sparks haha,

A god damn Oldsmobile alero I know it probably doesn't have enough juice but nice jumped my stoker with it before, yes they would arch the truck shows close to full voltage on the gauge so I'm assuming its somewhere around 11-12 v and I understand that if its not getting full voltage it wont crank fast enough but it should crank more than it is, its turning over once every like 2 seconds
