Q: Truck not getting any power

asked by on

The truck isn't getting any power at all. I cannot get it to start, or even turn over.

Hi. If the battery is fully charged and there is no power at the dash after the key is turned to the on position, I would suspect either a failed fuse or a faulty ignition switch. A car that new should be covered under warranty, but if you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the starting problem with your vehicle.
