Thread: Will not start

  1. #1

    Default Will not start

    I am new to this forum and i have question. I have a 1977 stepside and I have recently replaced the ignition lock. Before I replaced the lock it would start with no problem and now that I replaced it, it will not start (no crank at all.) I can also not have the key in the ignition and still be able to put it in Park Reverse Neutral Drive etc.. Can somebody help me out

    If it worked before then you did something wrong. Take it back apart and retrace your steps.

    Sounds like maybe you didn't get the bar that connects the ignition key lock to the electrical box that controls accessories, start and run.

    Did you try bypassing the ignition switch and see if it will start that way?
