There is a gray wire coming off of the ignition switch. Use a multimeter to check it for voltage. It should have 9 volts dc With the ignition on. If not the ignition switch is bad. This is a common failure on this model.Please rate my answer so that I can get credit for assisting you. After rating you can always add a reply if you need further assistance with this problem.
