Welcome to Justanswer
I need to know if your getting the security light flashing on the dash.
No, no cluster lights come on when I turn the key.
I believe you may have a blown fuse
That's what i was thinking. How do I check to see if that's the problem?
I will get a photo on here one moment
First check the battery feed fuse and the backup fuse
Let me know if you have any other questions at the moment. Thanks
What about the ignition fuse? Shouldn't I check that since the ignition system seems not to be responding at all. All the lights other than the instrumentation light that come on when you turn the ignition come. So it seems like an ignition problem.
The battery feed controls everything
I have also had the reverse fuse cause no start
But if those fuses are good then you can go down the list and check all the fuses associated with the system like the ignition fuse
Ok. How do I tell if its bad or not? Will the tip be black or something?
Normally when you pull the fuse out and look there will be a break thats noticeable on the fuse at the shop we use a ohm meter but inspecting normally works when the fuse is bad it will have a break in the line
Ok, thanks. I'll be right back.
Sorry for the delay. Had a little trouble getting the fuse out. I took the fuses out and checked them. The one you said to check first didn't look broken, though it was pretty chard on the prongs, I don't know if that could be an issue or not. The other fuses related to it didn't look bad either.
That needs to be replaced
If there is any corrosion or anything then there is most likely a problem with that fuse
Ok. I'll try that out and hopefully it works out. Thanks for your help. But just one thing before I let you go. If that doesn't work do you have any other ideas as to what it could be?
If you can get ahold of a Digital volt ohm meter we can trace the wiring and find out where the power is missing but if that fuse is as you described I believe it to be at fault
Thats the main fuse there and if its bad no power inside no start just like you described
Ok, dude. Thanks for the help. How do I get back in contact with you on here for more advice from you?
