  • Check the switch for proper operation.
  • The engine must be in the P (Park) or N (Neutral) positions only. If adjustment is required, loosen the switch retaining bolts and rotate the switch slightly.
  • Tighten the bolts and check the switch for proper operation.
  • Repeat the switch adjustment procedure until the engine starts when the shift lever is positioned in park and neutral.
  • If improper operation continues refer to Park/Neutral Position Switch Replacement.
  •  

    Also check your brake switch

    ok we can start the bravada up when we jump the starter post or jump the fuse relay but not threw the key ignition
    Expert:  danny replied 4 years ago.

    there is some issues with the ignition switch.

     

     

     

     

    When diagnosing a concern regarding an intermittent vehicle no crank or dead battery, technicians should remove and reinstall the ignition switch using the Ignition Switch Replacement procedure in the Steering Wheel and Column section of SI. The ignition switch may have been misindexed in the steering column during a previous replacement.

    If the ignition switch is misindexed in one direction, the ignition switch circuits will not be completely open when the ignition switch is in the OFF position with the key removed. This may result in lights remaining on or instrument panel lights illuminating, which will drain the battery. If the ignition switch is misindexed in the opposite direction, the ignition circuits will open correctly but the ignition switch may not close the crank circuit properly when the ignition key is turned to the crank position. This will result in a no crank concern.

    when we turn the key the dash lights do come on but the driving lights wont now is that ignition switch?

     

    Expert:  danny replied 4 years ago.
    sometimes yes sometimes no. I will do a little extra checking for you to see if I can find testing for you.
