Discovered tailights were staying on even with ignition key removed. Removed fuse for lights and proceeded to boost start. Maybe something not recommend to do, but not having a charger as described in the manual or the time, I hooked up booster cables. After sometime the volt meter showed over 13 volts, dash lights came on but no turning of the starter. Put the light fuse back in an it started. When I turned key off tailights went off properly. Still don't understand why light fuse kept engine from starting or why I put it back in thinking it would, for that matter.
