So I’m having an issue where I was working on my instrument panel around the column area and after I put everything back together again (so I thought) I started the engine to move it back into the garage but when I turned the key off the engine kinda stayed running then it was just cranking over and over like crazy, I disconnected the battery. I have a new solenoid and starter. I went back in and removed the trim around the column lowered the column to inspect and the column switch which has the rod connected to the ignition switch. The column switch appears ok I can move it all the way over and it springs back so to me it works. The rod moves freely as well as the key. Every time I touched the battery cable to the battery it cranks!! I replaced the so I replaced the solenoid again the one next to the battery and now nothing. No lights no power no crank.
Battery being charged now but seemed to at 12v. Stumped I’ll check fuses and make sure solenoid is installed correctly. Solenoid that was removed rattles when shook. So yeah what the …!
Thank you. I did have a bad ignition switch after all which welded the solenoid. She runs after replacing both of these parts. Thanks it’s so great a have resource like this with awesome folks that are willing to help each other out. Very thankful.
