It started when I came home to dead engine battery that was fine 24hrs. prior. I decided the draw was a radio the PO had installed that would not shut off. The faceplate was hot to touch when key was off. So, I used the toggle in the glovebox to "jump" the engine and took a ride to get gas. Turned engine off to gas up and it re-started like it had a full charge.
Altenator is good.
Got home and decided the radio had to go. Disconnected the front ant then had to open that side of dash to get to the wires and pull out the radio.No problemo.
While I'm this far I decide to have a look at that headlight switch to see if I can figure out why my clearance lights are not working. Removed screws on the other side of dash and took a gander.
Starting to feel a little over my head. I don't see anything obvious with the switch or wires and decide it best to concede. Replace dash and turn key. All gauges light up but no turnover. No noise, no nothing. I surmise the battery has run dead again, and attempt the "jump". Nothing. Noticed the ignition switch was loose in the bracket, but coul not get it to tighten. Re-remove dash on L side and fiddle with the ignition switch wires. After a couple minutes, Vrooom!
After a couple hours went back outside to check battery. The switch was loose in bracket and the motor would not turnover. All enginge gages illuminate but no contact with the starter. My gut tells me it's something near the switch since moving them earlier re-established contact and allowed me to crank. It also will not let me crank from the coach batts. I will assure it is in park(from another thread)and aside from that I'm lost.
Any ideas will be appreciated. I've had the MH 5 days and it has been trying. Power steering hose replaced, flat front air bags, no clearance lights, no high beams, ignition, rear pressure gage or light, and heaven knows what I have yet to discover.
Maybe a touch of buyers remorse.
