another issue

great :) i don't know what the problem is, I have no dash lights/gauges won't light up no CEL. Radio doesn't turn on. I checked the fuses under the dash and no power to my engine fuse along with the radio fuse and no power to windows. Will crank but wont start. (it ran for about 2 weeks after installing the disy. Car was taken to emissions and they hooked up a obd2). told me to come back in a few months for it to "gather codes" really are you f***in with me?! I am not sure if when the hooked up the tester if it messed up how everything works. I installed the distributor and everything worked fine. Maybe an unlucky disy. any info would be greatly helpful thanks

Re: another issue

Have you checked the fuses under the hood?

Re: another issue

alright i replaced the 100 amp main fuse with a fresh one. okay here is the symptoms as of right now.... engine fuse is not getting power along with meter fuse. *fan is running when turn key and no Check engine light comes on. WHEN I jumped the relay with a jumper using the wiring diagram with two wires twisted together the car started up and runs. once i pulled the wires outta the relay area the car shut off and the fan kicked back on... the distributor was just replaced with a used working one. I am not sure but wouldn't that possibly indicate that the ignition switch is faulty? I did not check to see if the engine fuse was working but the windows started working again also once i jumped the relay. I am not sure but i think this information is a good clue to what is wrong with my issue. I have two Ignition relays one came with the car and one i got from a junk yard. :) let me know if you have heard of this similar problem. Maybe its a bad relay's. I just hope those wires arnt worn and crossing metal though :(
