Hello and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 11 months ago.

Do the headlights and dome lights work?

Are you looking for possible causes?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
All lights work and I checked batteries. Have 13.5 volts.
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 11 months ago.

Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the cluster when trying to start the engine?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No. It's shows a battery and a car with lock on it.
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 11 months ago.

So there is a security light on when trying to crank the engine?

Have you tried using another key? Maybe you just have a bad/faulty ignition key

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The one mustang is 1987 with 1200mi. The other is 2013 Boss with 238 mi. I never had any problems till the new circuit breaker panel was instlled.
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 11 months ago.

What circuit breaker?

Maybe we should focus on one vehicle at a time.

They are wired completley different.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Go with the Boss
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 11 months ago.

Ok, I will need the VIN and any stored codes in the computer.

Try another ignition key and let me know the results.

I will be looking forward to your reply.

According to dealer vin doesn't make any differance.
