Im chris im new to the forum, i got a 1985 Vk Calais efi a few days ago and it wont start as there is no power going to the injectors or dash, im thnking it mayb that the computer is blown from the last owners connecting the battery around the wrong way or them trying to jump start it, where is the computer located and how do i test if its blown or not?

Well it's located behind the front left kick panel. But wouldn't have a clue how to check if it's blown. Have ya checked all ya fuses? Do you have power to anything?

I only took it off the charger about 2hrs ago after it had been on charge all night long, and i only cranked it over 3 times for like 45sec at a time it should b nearly fully charged still!. i dont get how the car lost so much power so suddenly cound i have blown somethng from putting it from N to D while the engine was turning over?
