Re: 88 5KCSTQ Electrical Mystery!
Sounds like the classic dead battery. You mentioned your battery is fully
charged, however, hmmm...
I have the same car, had the same symptoms 2 mos. ago, had the battery
"recharged" to full using my battery charger, but it would still not start
if left for more than a few hours or started too often. So, even though the
meter on the charger says "full charge", it really isn't because once a
battery has gone dead, it will never fully charge.
Bought a new $50 battery, problem solved.
You may also want to check you alternator/elec system to see if they're the
culprit(s) for your dead battery. (mine was too much stereo cranking!)
