graphicI have read your other question also. When you do a a complete seering column replacement. you are into the ignition. Yes this could be a seperate issue but my gut feeling say you didnt reconnect something or your ignition connection became disconnected why you did your work. as it started when it was all off I bet it happened when you were putting it all back together. I believe you said the ip wasnt coming on either. This could be a disconnection also. If it were a fuse i will include this info so you can check them.

 

 

This is the fuse block and info if its not a fuse ( check all you never know). get under there and look for wires disconnected and connections or shorted out wires or crimped or piched wires.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
