So the other day I was replacing the wiper motor on my 80 el camino and when I got done I tested it and it worked fine, so I turned the key off. A little bit later I tried to start it and nothing happened, no dash lights or radio or anything. The battery is brand new and fully charged, the alternator is brand new, I got the starter tested and it was fine. I tested some of the fuses on the panel and got power to the courtesy lamp and such but none of the others. I suspect the ignition switch or a faulty wire somewhere. Has anyone had a similar issue and how would I test the ignition switch?
