Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident
we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill
level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to
get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.

This can be a security problem, but before we go there, let's check the ignition switch in and out it. We need power from the power distribution box to it and to the ignition and fuel system.

Thanks, Ron

How do i check for power ? When i turn the key the dash lights come on but nothing when i go to start position.
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 1 year ago.

You need to use a test light or DVOM and check for power going into and out of the ignition switch. The steering wheel will most likely need to be taken off, air bag disabled as well as the clock spring.Not very asy to do.

Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.

If i have a security issue how do i reset it
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 1 year ago.

You can't, it has to be done with a scan tool from a shop.
