my 97 has been sitting in shop for a couple months.usually go start it up and let it run for 15 min or so,every few weeks.
fri 3/25 decide its time to get truck out,wash it and start driving it again.starts fine.scangauge shows voltage a little lower than normal,12.8 vs 14.2.think no big deal been sitting,let truck run 15-20 min.drive truck about a 1/8 of a mile to wash truck.
wash truck maybe 30 min total with ignition in acc
(radio on).truck cranks fine.pull back around front,shut off, acc
on radio,gonna start cleaning interior.
radio for roughly 15 min and shuts off like turned ignition off.wth try to turn ignition on to crank,nothing.pop hood start checking fuses in distribution block,no power at fuses.pull all maxi fuses and replace,then int light comes back on,ok no big deal.figure i would check the scangauge for codes,there was 2 codes one was for the cps
,and dont remember the other code
think it was a 6## code, just for s&g's.no power again(interior light out),check fuses nothing.batteries have power,starter has power going to it,turn ignition switch on no power,no electrical power in cab,no headlights,nothing
i have heard of some trucks having ignition switch issues.anybody have/got any ideas?,anything i'm missing or overlooking.
sorry for the long post,but wanted to give as much info as i could to possibly help.
