check the fuse to make sure it is not blown. you will find the fuse up under the dash area. if the fuse is good you will need to get a meter and check for voltage on the red wire at terminal "b" on the ignition switch (red wire). if you do not have power there, the red wire has a fault between the ignition switch and where it connects to the battery cable. if you do have power there, lock the parking brake down and turn of the pto. now check for power on the white wire at terminal "s" on the ignition switch while you hold the key in the "start" position. if you have no power there, the ignition switch has failed.

let me know what you find back here on this thread and we can proceed as necessary.

thank you for using manage my life!
