Hi bourquejason


Take a look at your multi-switch connectors on the steering column, make sure the wires are not loose within the molex connector. Test the multi switch with a DVOM on all connectors. If they check out OK you will need to test the ignition switch.


Question: Is the security light on ?

Test your ignition switch.

If the switch turns out ok then there should be power going to the instrument cluster and to the ALDL connector. Test all fuses to the DRL the running light's sensor must run through a dimmer switch, you will need to test the switch with your DVOM by blocking the running light sensor so maximum power runs through the switch. Look for any dead spots on the dimmer switch using the resistance scale.


post back your findings.
