Went out to start my truck in am and didn't start. Had been having trouble with the key staying in start position replaced ign switch still no start thought I might have damaged starter. Replaced it. Though it tested good. After jumping starter relay though the ignition switch I purchased might have been bad. Took it back exchanged it and tried the new ign switch. No crank no start still

I have a test probe
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Never did learn how to use this volt meter
Expert:  kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

What I need you to do is check all the fuses in both fuse boxes and see if you have 12 volts on both sides of all the fuses please. Let me know what fuses do not have any power on them and what fuses only have power to one side of them please.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

What brand volt meter do you have?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Fb. Has black and red leeds
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
13.75 on battery
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
With battery charger on it. Doesn't take long to run down. Headlights stay on this truck
Expert:  kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

Set it to dc volts, hold the black lead to a good ground, and with the tip of the red lead, touch it to the little metal piece on the top of the fuse. see what the voltage is on each of these metal pieces. Each fuse has two of these metal pieces sticking up out of the top. Let em know if any of the fuses do not have any voltage on them or only have voltage to one of the two pieces.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
10.54v on on side of each large ign fuse
Expert:  kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

I need to know what fuses only have power to one side, and what fuses have no power on them.

Always check the crank fuse first. A lessen learned the hard way. Ha
Expert:  kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

That was what I was asking you to do, but needed to know if you had a power problem to the fuse box, or a bad fuse.
