Hello DennisG-- You either lack a sufficient power source (i.e. bad battery) or you have a short somewhere that is robbing you of power. Try the battery first. It is easy to check and fairly cheap to replace. If it is not that, you need an experienced mechanic to find the source of the drain. Electrical systems in cars are very complex and quite fussy. Get an on-site expert to help you. Good luck from Bovan.
