Customer Question
Hi, I have an...

Hi, I have an 87 toyota pickup, I have no dash lights, no turn signals, no wipers. I changed the ignition switch and this fixed nothing. Plenty of Power on the battery, 12 volts on the ignition switch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The old ignition switch would make the starter relay click or sometimes buzz. I could run a wire straight from battery to the starter and the truck cranked fine. After I replaced the switch things went from intermittent to not at all.

Do you have a voltmeter or simple 12v test light with a reasonable knowledge of how to use it? Do you the wiring diagram to follow by?
