i got the knock sensor code erased, drove it for good while, nothing at all. went to drive up the street to the store, and it came on immediately. im pretty sure there arent any wires shorted. if there were, fuses would be popping left and right, wouldnt they?? when i drove it last night by the way, my brights light on the dash doesnt work, along with the guages, and the needles for the guages dont work at all either. everything wlse works fine as far as i know though. could this issue be tied into a grounding problem that wont necessarily make the engine not run? anything at all helps me out, and i appreciate everything youre telling me already. thanks again, don

i just fired it up this morning, and cleared the code withe my OBD2 reader, i noticed that when the key is in the on position, right before it powers the ignition, primes the fuel pump, etc. my odometer readings show, but when i turn the key to the fully on position, to start it, they go off/away. im thinking this is tied into the same thing as everything else. am i wrong?? waht do you think?? thank you for taking the time again to help me out, much appreciation. thank you, don

That sounds like bad ignition switch, not the key part, the electrical switch.

would this be behind the key, in the steering column? i checked the ign fuse and every other fuse i could, and there fine. does the switch maybe explain every problem im having?thanks again for all the pointers, learning a lot as well. don

I was diagnosing the indicator light problem, it appears to be related to the ignition switch. As far as all your problems, you have to start some where.
The switch is located at the key assy, follow the bundle of large wires to locate it. Be careful taking off the top cover with the hazard switch, it is easily broken.

yea my switch broke off awhile age..do you have to take the steering wheel, etc off to get this out, or can you just go through the column itself? and how would you test the ignition to c if its the problem??thanks a ton

Look and see what fuses the switch powers. Check for power with the key on run at each fuse with a 12 V test light.

I can find the access door for the oil filter but not the oil drain plug.
