'76 450 SLC. Electrical issues? Please Help!
My name is Tyler and I recently purchased a gently used, beautiful green '76 450. It's a champ and it sings on the highway, I love this car. Yesterday morning however, I started up and drove down to Walkgreen's (block and a half away), came out five minutes later and had a dead battery (or so it appeared, no lights, wouldn't start, etc.) Walked home and got the jumper cables and drove my girlfriend's car over, but jumping wouldn't work. Took the battery in to autozone and had it tested.... good battery. Now i'm left wondering what it could be... i'm thinking short/bad connection/corroded wires somewhere along the 7 foot journey they have to take from the trunk, but i'm still not sure. When i get in and leave the door open, it buzzes at me when i put the key in and today i got the stereo to work, but if i try to start it or turn the lights off, it all goes dead. Any help at all would be much appreciated, i'd rather do this myself than take it to anyone else.
