Here's what happened. Wife is driving the car, and the tire jack winds up contacting both terminals of the battery, at the same time, unknown to her. Car quits. I come help, I can get it moving running, but as soon as I take the ebrake off (and light disappears on the dash) it stalls. Got it towed.
Car is 1999 Miata 1.8L 5spd.
Car turns over strong, doesn't fire up anymore
Dash has no lights
No check engine light comes on
Power mirrors, windows, etc do not work
Will not jump start
Checking "room fuse" & "engine fuse" in interior fuse box
Checking and replacing main efi relay (green one)
Checking all fuses, including big ones under hood.
Checking that ECU connection is tight
Replace battery and check cables for damage
Followed this set of processes, only step 2 because everything else seems to be fine. I have not tried pulling codes, but doubtful due to no dash lights.
I would love some thoughts. I'll clarify anything I missed.
