when i turn key to start dash lights go out
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry i lost power to my pc
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

I say you need a starter , its a good idea to have somebody at starter and one at igntion key and see if there is power down at the starter solenoid if u have power , it is definite the starter, if you dont have power to the starter than , it is the switch or the wiring to the switch

did u see the diagrams i sent you
