Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
My 2000 olds bravada wont start. I put the key in the ignotion and when i turned it it clicked none of the gagues would come on. Non of the lights will come on nothing electrical will work. The battery is fine full charge, and i even tried to jump it just in case but it didnt work. the steering wheel is unlocked but it will not allow me to take the car out of park. Is this and ignition switch, one of the modules in the fuse box, or something else, where do i start checking.
Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.
