It's the V8... Check engine light does not illuminate

No wipers no radio

Do you know what the voltage is at the battery? Have you tried a jump start?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tried jumping it... Battery voltage is normal... No electric is getting from the battery to the ignition... I think it is anti theft shutdown
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.
If it's a security issue the red security light should be on.. Do you have another gray headed key to try?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Both keys are black
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.
Yes for your model the remote is built into the key.. And both key don't start it? Is the red light on at this time?
