    Well last storm I had my first casualty truck wise. My 93 1500(my personal truck) completely quick on me.:cry: No dash lights, nothing going to the starter, just plain old died. I smelled an electrical burnout somewhere but i couldn't find anything in the middle of the storm. What is weird the light under the hood was on and my headlights worked. No taillights or anything. I put a quick presumption that the starter burned out but I have a feeling thats not the only thing thats going to rear its ugly head. Any suggestions? I'm completely stumped.:confused:

    fusible link near the batt burn in half? if 2 batts, is one dead? if yes, put jumper cables to both batts and try it. take cables from a good battery or another truck and put + to the starter solenoid post out to starter. if nothing go to the + post right to the starter. put - to the engine and then the starter case or bolt.

    just for kicks put on some safety gasses or shades.
