could it be a faulty ignition switch?
Expert:  kalamykid replied 9 months ago.

Have you checked all the fuses with a test light or a digital volt meter with the ignition switch in the run position to see if you have power on both sides of all the fuses?

Fuses are all good, need to test ignition switch
Expert:  kalamykid replied 9 months ago.

Did you test them with a test light? A fuse can look good, but still not let voltage through it. You have to many things not working, and you may have a bad fuseable link, not feeding the fuse boxes. Testing them with a test light or a digital volt meter will tell me where we need to go to find your problem. I just need to know what fuses have no power to them and what fuses only have power to one side of the fuse please.
