Asked by Oct 08, 2014 at 01:06 PM about the 1989 Ford E-150 XL Club Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

No power! nothing happens when turning key. no lights at all. Removed isolator, and have never had aux battery in. checked all fuses under dash, can't locate power distribution box in engine compartment. not sure which component to check. all wires affected were either attached to isolator or starter cylinoid.

1 Answer

had to play musical chairs with wires, now that isolator is removed. got power now, but no turn over. probably starter cylinoid.
