Sorry for the delay. You need to switch the multimeter to DC Volts. You have it set to a amperage setting. The red test lead may need to be moved at the meter also. There is usually one ground(black) lead and 2 red lead ports. If there is two lead ports, the red lead needs to be plugged into the one with just voltage markings, not one with A,MA,diode, etc.Retest and let me know. Jason
I RETESTED ON DC VOLTS AND GOT NO READING ON FUSE 5 AND A READING OF 75 ON FUSE 7, I WENT FROM A RANGE OF 2.5- 500. NOTHING ON FUSE 5 SO THAT MEANS I HAVE TO REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH RIGHT DO I HAVE TO TAKE THE STEERING COLUMN APART. WHERE IS THE IGNITION SWITCH LOCATED.
The ignition switch is located behind the steering column cover. A couple of screws hold it together. There is a upper and lower cover. Once it is unscrewed, the ignition switch is on the left side of the column. A couple more screws and the switch comes out if I recall. A fairly easy job. The ignition switch should run between 80-100$ from most parts stores. More from the dealer I think. I have been having computer issues so this response is a little behind... Jason
