Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the power back? I think I have a problem with the on the dash battery cut off switch. unfortunately the 12 volt also operated the air conditioner. every thing was working perfectly and suddenly all just quit.

This is a common problem. You need to by-pass the large relay that the dash battery cut off switch operates. There has been several threads on this subject. Maybe MM will post a link to one of them.

I can't provide a link but look at my post on this forum about the battery disconnect. It will show pictures of what you need to do. Basically, in the electrical panel below the drivers seat you will find a relay with three battery cables connected to it. Bypass the relay and connect the three battery (RED) cables together. As previously stated, this relay is a common problem. I along with numerous others have elected to leave it bypassed and not replace the relay as it serves no usefull purpose. MM can you provide a short lesson on how to provide a link to us PC challenged folks?

Nodine,
Off the top of my head, and you've probably already done this; are there any loose cables going to the battery cut-off (red) switch in your battery compartment? Just throwing one out there for ya to ponder.
Good Luck,
Tom Brickwell

It worked I hooked all of the red wires together to bypass the solenoid. This forum is wonderful. Tommy

I have been dealing with the dealership end of the "Cash for Clunkers" - so I have been swamped recently and not able to respond as normally do ... I saw that Rusty answered your question about links... Did that help?

This is probably the first thread - and it has photos too!

If anyone is like me an actually likes that "salesman switch", HERE is where you can pick up a spare relay at probably much less than what Monaco would charge. I just bought one for a spare to use when mine finally bites the dust.
