Some cars are not switched to do this. If operated before now as you would like, but not now, then the problem is most likely a fuse or relay.. good luck

Why don't the headlights, turn signals, and wipers work?


Check fuses. Replace the turn signal switch for the head lights. If the wiper fuse is good, Replace the turn signal switch first, then go after the wiper motor. Both run threw the turn signal switch.

Hooked battery up backwards


You need to take the Alternator in for a Bench check. The diodes are probably bad. Wiper switch or motor can be bad. Radio can be smoked.

For wiper motor, the contact points use a system where a derailer mechanically shifts the points to break contact. The contacts are probably fused.

Won't start


It ended up being corroded wiring. Apparently the wiring from the steering harness to the fuse box under the hood was corroded & had to be replaced.

1999 Pontiac Montana - radio, wipers, A/C, & power


All of these circuits are controlled by the key switch. If the fuses for these circuits are good but have no voltage, I would check the key switch next.

Why is it when i turn the key foward radio don't work and truck won't fire but when you turn the key backwards the radio comes on


You don't say what kind of vehicle we are talking about, but it is safe to assume your ignition switch needs to be replaced.

When I start my 96 ford Taurus I have no radio or windshield wipers or speedometer. But when turn key backwards radio and wipers work


I am betting it is your ignition switch- it is just like any other type of switch, in that it has contacts that eventually wear out. Once you turn the key to start the car, it returns to a position that maintains the contacts to power your accessories, and it sounds like those contacts inside the ignition switch are worn or broken. The "acc" contacts when you turn the key backward are rarely used so they are still in good shape, unlike the "run" contacts which get hit every time you start the car.

The blinkers and wipers and radio dont work unless the key is turned backwards, if the jeep is running none of these work, this is a 1999 jeep wrangler tj


sounds like the accessory side of the ignition switch is not working. When the key is on run position the same wire that is hot coming out when the key is turned to accessory should be hot, along with the ignition wire that runs the engine. (hot meaning it has 12v)
