Re: 1991 Southwind ford 460 efi wont start by Mike E
Post New Message Does the motor turn over but wont start.Or it won;t turn over.???? IF the cable came off while the motor was running,your 12 system may of had a very high voltage rise due to the load being un hooked.Could have have gone up to 70 or 80 volts for a surge of voltage.Frist check all fuses and fuseable links.If it won;t turn over cause the battery keeps going down check the diodes in the alternator.I Fixed my neighbors MH twice when froze up the battery and it cracked open.IT blew out a lot of stuff that was turned on in the coach as well.Do you know what the pop was,any burn marks around the cable area.May have hit the frame or anything around there.I guess Iwould start at the Ign.Switch and look for 12v.Then the coil look for 12v.If no voltage look for voltage on the safety switch resetable usually near lower part of steering column.It turns off fuel pump when in a accident.maybe it shorted to ground.Could be many things.
