yes 12 volts at battery when I first tried to start truck ignition switch would not turn I then sprayed penetrating oil into siwct and let sit over night now switch turns but nothing happens, no sound, click nothing, lights on dash mildly dim when I turn ignition switch. Battery warning light in dash stays on when I turn switch, figure that would go out only once motor is running.


all other lights working


test all and ignition switch bad jumped starter and got it running enough to move to another location thanks for all your help
