Windows.interior panel,radio a/c and gauges not working ford f150 4x4.Already check fuses are ok and with volts.There is something else to check in between?..


Check if your ignition switch is working. Turning the key to on should send power to those fuses for the things not working. Use a test light to check if power is getting to those fuses, when key is turned to on. If no power, something is wrong with your ignition switch. Are you sure all fuses are good?

Nissan avenir dash lights


There is a fuse for the warning lights and gauges. Yes, you checked the fuses and relays, but you need to check if power is there at the fuse, with the key in the on position.

Here's how turning the key to on causes the warning lights and gauges to turn on: From your ignition switch the on or run wire out of it will have power with key on. The run wire will also send power to the part of the fuse panel that is of the category "hot in run or on", where your fuse for the dash warn. lts. & gauges is- it may be labeled "meter" or "gauges" or like that. From the fuse, a hot wire goes into the harness for the instrument cluster-for the warning lights and gauges. The wire, like the fuse, is only hot in on or run.

The ignition's run wire may splice with a direct connection to some fuses, or more likely there may be an "ignition relay" that powers the "hot in run or on" fuses, and the run wire is used to turn the relay on. You could look for this relay just above or around the fuse panel under the dash. But the easiest place to start is to see if the fuse for the gauges has power to it with the key in on. If it does, the problem is up further on at the cluster connection or a ground for the gauges and cluster. If the fuse has no power available, then the problem is between the ignition switch and the fuse panel. That could be a faulty ignition relay.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

95 GMC ignition system doesn't power


Sounds like an alternator problem. Pull it of the truck and take it to a parts store and have them test it for u. Its free at most parts stores. while your at it replace all power cabels and grounds the trucks old new cabels and connections cant hurt. Side post batteries have a bad habit of ratiling lose connections. hope this helps and good luck.
