Does it have tilt steering? Mine has a wiring problem in the steering column. If I have it tilted all the way up, everything works fine. If I tilt it down, weird things happen, like lights come on, won't start, wipers don't work, etc.

Have you checked fuses? Check for power at the harness connector on the column and report back.

Found the problem the relay under the hood on the firewall had a melted wire at a fuse link I cut this out an replaced it and everything is working fine again!

Way to go. Glad it was something relatively simple.

The time now is 04:52 PM.
