Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Turn the key and no lights on the dash, battery has a full charge and I can
crank the engine running a wire with a clip from the starter to the battery but it
won't fire.  I get nothing when I turn the key no sound or lights but my theft
light is blinking.  I have headlights and everything else inside the vehicle but
none of my icons on the dash light up.  Was just fine a couple of days ago.

1 Answer

Found fuse under the hood was blown and also ignition relay was loose. Check these first if you encounter the same problem. Pretty easy and cheap fix.
