When I turn my head lights on my truck the radio won't work at all. It lights up and says camera on the screen but nothing works. When I turn off the lights my radio works fine. Why is that?


What is the source of power? Headlight circuit? . Installer boo boo? or possibly wiring is incorrect? Poor radio grounding possible Reccommend returning to installer before radio is damaged in order to preserve the warranty.

Truck wont start


It could be the fender mounted starter relay under the hood. Or if you took off the small wire at that relay (its from the ignition switch), it should have voltage when the key is held in start. If it does have power in start, probably the relay. If no power in start, either the switch or the neutral safety switch is acting up.

When i turn the key to start my 94 chevy truck, nothing happens. the battery is good, the lights do not dim when i turn the key. Could this be the ignition control module?


if you have a standard transmission,check the switch on the clutch pedal,if you have an automatic trans,check the purple wire on the solenoid while a friend tries to start it to see if the power is getting to the starter,if it is replace the starter,if not check the starter relay first,then the neutral starting switch.

Help my 1995 Dodge ram 2500 will not start.


Hi cotboh7 If this truck rolled off the ramp I would check the neutral safety switch. You could also check that the shift linkage is set properly, also back to that starter, sometimes they give no indication at all, this happened to myself recently, parked the truck came out nothing, it was the starter in my case.But that has nothing to do with the truck rolling in park, and the neutral safety switch is for just that purpose, which is why it must be in park or sometimes neutral to start.I hope this helps,good luck to you.

2008 F-150 wont start


Radio could be wired wrong. Check the constant and accy power on the radio with a multimeter and make sure you are getting 12V on the constant and getting 12V on the accy only when the car is in accy or on. Also make sure the wire harness is properly wired. This can happen often if the radio constant and accy power wires are wired in reverse.
