I just replaced the battery as the car sat all winter, and it was an old battery, the volt reading is 12.6. My issue is i appear to only be getting power to my lights (hi/lo beams, hazard and interior, but not the turn signals), door jam sensor and that is it, i did a quick once over the fuses, as i am to get ready for work, and the fuses all look fine. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas as to what the problem might be?

Does the starter solenoid click when attempted to start or nothing at all? Ensure good, clean, tight connections. The negative wire where is goes to the firewall is a typical place of corrosion/high resistance.

When I left it for work I had nothing working other than the lights. I am wondering if my ignition switch went bad over the winter, I will be testing all I can think of tomorrow and let you guys know what the deal is.

well i have it narrowed down to either the ignition switch itself, or the wires leading to and from the switch, seeing as i couldn't find any indication as which wire is for what on the switch i didn't completely test it yet

OK i know it has been a while since i posted about this topic but i still have this problem, my headlights, interior lights, and 4 way flashers work normally. My issue is i have tested the battery and it is 12.4 volts.
The resistance in the wires leading to and from the ignition switch seems good (0.2ohms).
The black/orange wires leading to the ignition switch are carrying 11.8 volts, and the voltage drop across the switch is 11.8 volts.
As it stands right now i am out of ideas other than the EEC module, which i will be testing later tomorrow after i print of the connector diagrams tomorrow

Any other advice would be wonderful, as i am at my wits end on this, oh and all the fuses are good

alright i finally got this solved, i removed my engine compartment fuse box and one of the wires for fuse 4 was so corroded that it separated from the connector, I just thought i would let you guys know just in case someone else has this issue
