1976/78 99 electrical failure
Posted by BobD (more from BobD) on Fri, 26 Oct 2018 10:02:39
My '76 EMS has always been totally reliable over 20+ years and irregular usage. Before my ownership it had all systems from dash forward swapped from a '78 99.
Yesterday taking it out of slumber it fired right up after battery was boosted and ran great, washed and tidied, parked in driveway.
An hour later went to drive and it appears I have no electrical power or crank to start. I rotated all fuses before trying to start initially - knowledge of the fuse corrosion issue has made this a part of a start after sitting.
Any ideas ? Do 99's have ignition switch failures that result in no power being switched on ?
