asked by on

When trying to turn on the car my dash lights don't turn on. My car won't crank. All fuses work and I change the battery. I changed the post for the ground and negative side. Car does nothing. Starter is good. Under the steering wheel is a box with wires and I touched it and my dash lights comes on and car starts but its idle high now. It revs up to 2 on the rpm. Idk what's wrong

My car has 110000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
