Question about Cars & Trucks
Online sources suggested that the bus connection to the fuse box may be source of problem. Removed the fuse box cover on the drivers side of the engine compartment but saw only the lead from the battery. Below the fuse box in the same housing is another compartment that has a large cluster of wires going to it but looks difficult to open. Am I in the right area and is the vehicle OK to drive. Supposed to take in on an extended trip this weekend. Thanks for any advice.

There could be a fusible link under the hood off the starter relay that is burnt out.

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.

SOURCE: dash gauges not working
Check the large multi-pin connector in the electronics bay in the engine compartment. The bay is a fairly large black plastic box on the driver's side. Open it and disconnect the largest connector inside (one screw). Spray electrical contact cleaner on the pins and re-mate the connector. This worked on my '99 with the exact same problem. You can find other examples of this with a Google search. It may not solve your problem (could also be a wiring harness problem), but it is incredibly simple and worth a shot.

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.
