    Hey everyone!
    Im new here and i have a really strange problem. Although i've already read something about this problem in the forum, i couldnt find a solution.

    When i put my key in 2nd position no dash light appear(only the radio and the clock), i can go further and make the starter turn the engine but nothing happens.
    sometimes if i do it 2-.3 times it works but today it wont work at all!!!!!!

    Please someone help me with this! ??

    thanks a loot

    OK guys found the problem.
    Just as i thought from the beginning it was the ignition switch.
    I took off the plastic under the steering wheel and started to hit (with fury) everything.... and suddenly all the dash lights went on.
    its a cheap part and you can install it by urself in 5 min
