It is common for the ignition switch to short out and fry. I would suggest checking it first. I can give you a link to a video on how to change it out on a similar car.
Here is the video link. Car is similar and replacement is shown about half way through.
I will try that but will that cause everything to be dead in the dash
OK I will give it a shot hopefully tonight yet Thanks
I pulled the ignition switch it is not melted or burnt and there was not any fuses blown. should I replace it anyway? THX Don
I do have a voltage meter but I can't get back to work on it until tonight I'll check those then and get back to you
The red wire starts at 181Mv and jumps up and down, orange is 5 Mv green is 5 Mv
I did run 12 volts directly to the red wire and it fires right up but I want to fix it right it does run that way so is there a fuseable link in there?
There shows to be a 60A IGN SW fuse in the under hood fuse block. Check it and see if it is good.
Checked already that was ok
I will check that tomorrow before work thanks
I was wondering about that, would I have to have A fuse in the new wire or rely on the fuse box? it might take a day or two but Ill let you know how it comes out THX
