Truck won't start, no power to anythig


Asked by Feb 12, 2015 at 11:11 AM about the 1985 Ford F-150 XLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got a 1985 Ford F150. I turn the key, nothing happens, no clicking, nothing. When I open
the door, the dome lights don't even come on. I've checked the battery and all the cables
to it, and they are all fine. I get no power anywhere. Any Ideas??
