1998 Sportster, Power to speedometer, but nothing else?

I put the key in accessory or on position and the speedometer gets power, but the lamps will not come on, and the starter will not engage at all.

Try to do any of these troubleshooting:
1. Check the ignition switch,because the components or the connector inside it might be stucked up or loosen into position.
2. check the fuse .replace if it is open.
3.Check the batery wires.(red)because it maybe pulled into their sockets.

Different fuse. Check the fuse block located just behind your battery. Just pull the cover off and slide out the main fuse block, the very bottom one is blown if the starter wont turn over.

None of my power windows on 1998 Mercury Mountaineer work, checked fuses but can't find power relay if there is one. Any suggestions


If you checked the fuses and they are fine, try this. With the key on and the window button down or up, open and close the door holding in the up or down position. If the window moves, there is a wire(s) are broken in the wire harness that goes from the door jam to the door. This is a common problem that we find with window and door operating problems. You may find 1 bad or broken wire, or 4-5 broken wires. Let us know if this help you find a repair, for this concern. Craig

Battery drain


See if the battery acid is enough, if so try to put a piece of carpet or conveyor belt under the battery.

Hope this helps.

ps: sometimes you get new batteries that's a "dut" Have it tested at a local dealer, this is normally free of charge.

Regards.

Wouter.
