    Default 4ac Electrical gremlins - No power sometimes, unhooked battery clamp/fuse box, suddenly power?

    Probs going to have to get an auto electrician to have a look, but my ae71 4ac gets power to the starter/interior loom only very occasionally, it will start some days and not others. I moved the fuse box once and it suddenly started working (had power to the interior, and I cranked it and it started), then after i stopped running it, and tried again a hour later, it was back to not working. Any wiring diagrams or something I can have a look at? Wiring sucks so much ass.

    It's a molested ae71 4ac, so the looms probably been fucked with, as a aftermarket fuel pump and weber carb have been installed.

    I have shit all experience with auto elektrics, so any basic pointers or steps to trouble shoot/wild guesses on the source of the problem would help too lol.

    So you have no power at all inside the car when it won't start?

    Yeah none, I thought it might be contact on a fuse or something but I dont have a clue where to start looking/what goes where tbh. I cant see anything out of the ordinary on the main part of the wires/fuse box. Could a grounding issue cause something like that? (The battery is grounded solidly to the chassis from all I can tell)

    It should be pretty easy to find.. And will most likely be an earth or a broken plug into the fuse box

    Seems like I have a problem with the wiring... ahaha, it was under a length of insulating piping and wrapped in black electrical tape? Looks like it got melted or something and they just tape it back up lol.
