It appears the wiring harness that runs through the steering colum is either chaffed or a wire or connector has pulled away, causing the connection of some wires,but not all. I am assuming your battery voltage is around 12.5 volts, and has been load tested for an amp draw.
You'll need to drop the cover around the column and inspect your ignition harness. I have a feeling your going to find a loose/broken or damaged wire or connection. If this is not the case after you inspect this area for a probable cause, then you will have to check the wires in this circuit with a volt meter and also check for voltage drops.

What do I look for to fix the Power seats and power tilt steering has no power


A control module ! Electronics The steering column has a tilt/telescoping control system that consists of an electronic control module capable of class 2 serial data communication, a steering column power assembly with positioning motor and sensor, and a steering column control switch. The multi-function lever provides for the control of the headlamp high beams, and the windshield washer and wiper.
The tilt/telescoping steering column in/out/up/down switch is an input to the driver position module (DPM). The tilt/telescoping drive motor is an output function of the DPM.
Steering column memory settings are stored in the DPM. The steering column position sensor is an internal part of the tilt/telescoping motor assemblies, and is an input to the DPM. The DPM uses the position sensor input when storing and recalling memory settings.
Same thing with the seats , electronic control module .
Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to the memory seat module (MSM) through the battery positive voltage circuit from the POWER SEATS circuit breaker located instrument panel (I/P) fuse block. This voltage is used to power up MSM and also to apply power to the seat motors when commanded. Battery positive voltage from the TILT/TELE SW/MEM SEAT MOD fuse located in the body control module (BCM) fuse block that supplies voltage to the seat adjuster switch and the memory function switch, also supplies voltage to the MSM. The MSM monitors this voltage circuit in order to determine if battery voltage is supplied to the seat adjuster switch. The MSM is grounded through the module ground circuit and G301.

Trouble shoot a 2007 honda crv starter


Take the starter off for testing. If the lights were normally bright, and went dim when key was in cranking position, it means the start circuit is working-battery power is going to the starter, but it won't do anything. The starter motor is probably bad.
Good luck.

1993 nissan pick up won't start


Possibly a bad connection on the positive side coming from the battery or a weak ground. Check where the leads join the terminal clamps. Has the battery been verified as good? It doesn't take a lot of amps to run lights but it does to turn over the engine. Jump starting it does not require a fully charged battery.

Trailblazer will not start when steering wheel is tilted up. While holding key in start position and tilting the wheel down the engine will start. If left in that position it seems to start OK. If ...


Loose or damaged wiring in the steering colum. I'd suggest having a professional repair done, most likely the steering wheel will have to be removed and there's a chance of setting off the airbag. Dangerous and expensive.

Headlights won't turn on


This is a problem in my 1997 - I did not fix it but this is how my headlights work - When my headlights are ON they will only work when the steering wheel is tilted all the way up. In any other position only the parking lights will come on. I changed many bulbs before realizing the ISSUE.
I have yet to take the steering wheel apart to clean or replace any of the contacts on the tilt mechanics of the steering wheel.
