Will the car start and run for you right now?

but rough
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I would like you to start it, then wiggle the key in the ignition and see if you can make it happen. I mean make the windows not work and see if the dash goes out. I am thinking you have a possible ignition switch issue. If not, then the issue may be with the wiring coming out of the fusible link box under the hood. I have seen this happen in the past. The rough running might be something else, but we need to get this first part diagnosed first if possible.

Try this and let me know.

The car starts but the windows don't work n dashboard doesn't work odometer is blank
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, do you have a test light so we can check power? I realize you said the fuses were good, but good doesn't always mean they are getting the power, so we have to know if they are and if not we have to figure out why they aren't. A volt meter would aslo work for this but we need one or the other.
