Sure, CLEAN your battery cables - ESPECIALLY the bottoms. The bottoms are exposed to grease, road grime and when covered in "gunk" causes resistance. When you jump start or hit key multiple times, cables heat up and expand making better contact. Advise - clean ALL cable ends

1987 f150 turns off


Ignition switch is no good. Staying on at night, not switching power on and off to your engine. I don't mean the key and tumbler, i mean the switch down at the bottom of your steering column.
