Do power weapons, and lighting claws help when trying to damage a vehicle?
Sorry Iím new to this...
seems to me they should but I canít find anything in the rules or online anywhere.
No power weapons and Lightning claws confer no bonus when attacking a vehicle. Keep a few Krak grenades or a power fist nearby to crack open tanks at short range

'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Power weapons have no additional effect on vehicles and while Lightning claws allow you to re-roll to wound, they do not allow you to re-roll armour penetration rolls. "Pg.42 Main Rulebook"

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
It's worth noting that while STANDARD Power Weapons and Lightning Claws don't have any special effect on vehicle armour, some versions of the weapons (most often carried by characters) can have special rules that do give bonuses. The simplest example is Shrike's Lightning Claws in the Marine Codex - broadly speaking, they're plain old LC's - but they also have the Mastercrafted and Rending rules, giving them added effects beyond their general weapon class.
