Ok does the engine crank ?

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 6 months ago.

Or does nothing happen when turning the key all the way

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No the engine don't crank
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 6 months ago.

Ok so I want you to check the power on the battery. I'll tell you how. Hang on a minute. First thing I want you to find is the small push knob on the gauge assembly. Also I want you to make sure the center dash is showing the odometer so press the steering wheel buttons on the left side that have the squares on them until you see the odometer in the dash. Also it may show the outside temp or the speed depending on how your bf set up his dash. Let me know when you get this

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Only thing that it does is turn the dashboard lights on
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 6 months ago.

You will need to make sure all the doors and good are closed. Then insert the key and turn to the 1st click. Once there press the dash knob 3 times fast and you will hear a beep and the dash should show you the battery voltage.

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 6 months ago.

I meant doors and hood. Darn spellcheck and autocorrect

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 6 months ago.

Maybe we should do a phone chat to make this easier. We need to determine if it's battery related or key related.
