HELP!! DEAD 02 Intrepid

Went to start my 2002 Intrepid 65,000 miles and it made a slight click and then nothing!

No dash lights, the clicker etc, can't even manually use the auto door locks on the door.

I replaced the battery about 6 weeks ago, checked all the fuses never had an issue like this.

Any ideas, car is in great shape, no clue. I have owned the car 11 yrs 2nd owner.

Thanks
Gary

Check the condition of the battery cables both at the battery and the jump posts. Don't just look at them. Take them off/apart and clean them with a wire brush, etc.

This is a common problem.

You can pull the air box to get access to the battery from above. Loosen the hose clamp at the accordion tube closest to the firewall. The air box and resonator box are both sitting in there on plastic pins in rubber grommets. Just pull straight up.

Yep Ron nailed it, a loose negative terminal. Wasn't able to finish the job as it was getting late but was able to start it and pull it into the garage.

When I installed the battery I had to remove the wheel, and the wheel well cover to install.
last night I couldn't even see the neg terminal to diagnose (I did clean everything on install). So your saying I will be able to tighten everything up w/o removing wheel?

Who designed the battery placement! What a PITA! :-(

Thanks guys!
