    I have a 1999 Spyder and I am having so many problems with it. I drove it home one day shut it off and now I have absolutely no power to anything in the vehicle. I know mechanics. But not wiring. So can someone point me to what I would look for how to get it to turn over? I don't have interior lights, or ignition, nothing no power to anything. I changed the starter. Thinking it was bad. Checked wiring. Changed the 100 amp fuse. And back up fuse. Maybe grounds but I put a new ground off the negative off the battery. Where is the ecu on this car? Sorry for so many questions I'm at my wit's end with this car

    Did you have your battery tested?

    If you don't have a multimeter, I recommend getting or borrowing one and checking for voltage from the battery to the fuse box and down the line from there. Sounds like either a main fuse is popped or you have a dead battery. The ECU wouldn't cause you to have zero power anywhere.

    If you don't have one, you'll need a multimeter to figure out what's going on.
    With the virus going on Amazon might be the only place to get one.

    Like everyone is saying, using a multimeter will be the best way to find the issue. Check you battery and fuses. The main ground wire mounts above the starter. Mine tends to break alot so make sure that isn't fractured
