Intermittent no power at the key

Recommended Posts

Well, I wound up buying a new VP44. Ouch!! Now I have a whole new problem. Twice it has happened to me and once to my daughter that when the ignition is in the on position no dash lights appear nor does the engine turn over. There is no power at the ignition at all.

The batteries are 2 weeks old and are Interstate 1000 CA.

Any help would be appreciated as I am leaving on a 3500 km trip this coming Sunday pulling a 32ft trailer!!

Help!!

Do you use your tilt wheel often?There is a wire in there that gets frail from the tilt being used.It has happened to many.

actually, I dont have a tilt steering wheel. The truck only has air conditioning as an option, so that wouldn't be the problem. Thanks, arcwelder

Did you check the wiring where it attaches to the left positive battery terminal? There may be a loose/corroded connection there. Next I would recommend you take the plastic of the steering column and check the wiring at the ignition switch.
