Thank you. Do you have a voltage meter to run some tests?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yea I can get a hold of one where do you want me to start
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 2 years ago.
To start we need to check the power at a few fuses under the hood. In the under hood fuse box,with the key on, check the voltages at the fuses that have IGN in their label as well as the BATT fuses. Let me know what you find.

Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 2 years ago.
It is located under the hood in the fuse block. It is names PWRTRN
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No clicking
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Just the ign
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 2 years ago.
Thanks. We need to check the ignition switch. You will need to access the back of the switch connector behind the key lock cylinder. Once you access it you need to turn the key on the run position and make sure that all but the yellow wire have battery voltage. If not then the problem is in the ignition switch.
