Measure for the ignition voltage at the fuse panel. If you get this voltage right away, and the lights "pop on" later, then most likely a relay in the fuse panel. If the voltage appears at the same time as the lights, then it looks more like the ignition switch itself.

I have a 89 ford f150. put the key in, turn the key,, dash lights come on, but it will not turn over and start. I replaced the ignition switch but that wasnt it. any suggestions


Your battery may have a dead cell. It will still have 12+ volts and will run your dash lights and buzzer, but when a real load is requested, it doesn't have it to offer. The problem is quite common. The only way to know is to use a battery tester.

Car will not start-battery is fine


Try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. Your theft light should go out. As long as the light is on your fuel system is disabled. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys

Dash lights are not working 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK


most probable cause could be a faulty ignition switch. Does the lights on the dash come on when you turn the key to the on position ? Do they turn off when you turn the car to the start and are about to crank the engine ? If that does not happen you will have to replace the Ignition switch. They don't have a fuse for the dash lights.
