I think it has 2 boxes. but id look at the ignition switch. do the headlights work. and is there a big fuse very close to the battery you might be over looking. and a lot of time the fuse box gets power from the starter. check to see if you have power there. and does this truck turn over good luck

Why would battery power to my ignition switch come and go?

Bad connections at battery? Side post battery terminals are very prone to corrsion and poor connections. Other possibilities are weak/frayed fusible link, bad ignition switch.

I have no dash lights, tail lights, or parking lights... I checked all the fuses and they are all good... I hooked a power line up to where the fuses belong and all the lights work when i turn on the key...

You have at least 4 fuses in the Battery fuse box under the hood to check, plus the ones in the dash panel fuse box. Did you check them all in both places?

1981 oldsmobile delta 88.... I think i have major electrical problems.... outside car lights work, good battery, good connections on battery, car has a stereo system, has after market alarm, both do not...

Not to worry a fuse blew, delta 88 have fuseable links that are equipt in certain area there are some at the starter they blow open. There are some at the positive battery connection that controls dash and ignition switch, so the one we are going after is the ignition switch controls so when you turn the key on inside light goes on and door jam light goes on and better yet the key in ignition goes on. lets hunt that fuse down. First a fuseable link is a wire that allows heavy current to flow through it if it exceed the rated amperage it blows open 2 ways it opens youll see it seperated or you put your hand on it andtug it and it stretches because the wire seperated internally.So go to the positive of the battery are there link there do you see opens how about tugging anything stretched out. okay lets goe to the starter are they open or stretched if you find any open or stretch you need to replace it. now do you have a fuse box the one in the engine compartment is called a battery junction box look for fuses that went open.If everything is intact and looks good now lets go the the ignition area take a peek along the steering column. and turn the key see the rod that moves. as you turn the key that called a strut iginition rod. follow it it will lead to a juction that is called electrical ignition switch feel and move some of those with the key on and if you get power on(You will have to have the key on to do this) there you will find the problem. let me know

I had a friend install a radio for me. Now the interior lights do not work. Electric locks no longer work. Speedometer needle goes crazy when I put the key in the ignition. All fuses inside and outside are...

ok, most likely he hooked up the power to the wrong place or worse disconnected an important ground connection. the fuses will not blow because current is probably being redirected to other circuits. try to remove the radio and its connections and recheck for anything that got loose or removed especially ground connections. get a wiring diagram for your car and hook up power to the accessory circuit and make sure that it is protected by a fuse. again ground wires and connections are very important. problems here can cause a lot of weird symptoms.

Autozone said the OBD2 connector.. or DLC.. whatever it's called, is not getting power to it when he tried plugging the tool in to see why my check engine light is on. He had asked if I hooked up a stereo...

Used a test light with key on, if no light at test light on both proms on fuse, remove and check blown fuse, also some may not have voltage, turn head light's on, could be head light fuse, should come on with light's on, but it's best to just pull fuse and check to make sure it's good or bad, lighter fuse does power your OBD2.

No headlights, no interior light, and no power to the stereo.

1st check inside and under hood fuse boxes for bad fuses, smell boxes, if wiring went bad should smell baked wire smell around boxes. you can run wires direct from lights to battery or through $5 switch installed into your dash (autozone etc) to fix cheaply

My 97 Camry has no inside power, no radio, power windows, lights, dash lights, nothing. I changed the ignition switch, and put a new battery in, and there is still no power inside the car. Has anyone else...

There is a fusable link from your battery to everything inside the car. 62468983
See FL Main 3.0W - I believe that is where your problem lies. If all your fuses are good...that is the culprit. Good luck!

Dome lights won't come on

Check it very careful use a test bulb to verify the fuse connection, sometimes visual checking alone is not enough.

Is there a inside fuse box on a 2001 dodge caravan?

The fuse box is located on the dash behind the drivers door... open the door and look on the end of the dash on the drivers side.

Is there a roller or switch to adjust the dash light brightness? Have you just accidentally bumped it when doing the stereo install and switched it off? If not then it's likely that you have blown a fuse while wiring up the stereo. The easiest way to check fuses is to buy a cheap test light from any auto parts store and hook the clip lead to an exposed metal part of the body (door hinges are usually good) and probe each fuse at both of its exposed terminals (without removing the fuses). The test light should light up on both of the terminals, if it lights up on only one then the fuse is blown. If it doesn't light up at all then the circuit does not have power to it. This test should be done with the key in the on position. Also, the fuse box cover may have pictures of the relevant circuits on it, and you may be able to figure out from the picture which is the fuse for the dash lights and just pull it and visually check it.
