Truck won't start 08 Granite

Recommended Posts

I pulled into the shop today to charge the A/C I shut the truck off and now it won't start. There is no power to the switch if you turn the switch to the start position it will cycle like it is ready to start then it goes dead. I'm looking for ideas to check  Thanks Tim

I have that same situation but the tractor will blow the fuse and it will shutdown. I’ve inspected the wiring and using a test light to the positive side of the fuse I get power and when I test the other side I can hear the ignition relay clicking. I replaced the relay and now it works but I need the get to the root of the problem. Anyone have any info?

Relays do go bad. The coils short and or the  contact points burn and pull a high resistance, over load and pop the fuse.
