CHEVY NO DASH GAUGES, THIRD GEAR STARTS

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

Electrical problem
2002 Chevy Avalanche V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles

I have a 2002 avalanch and cant seem to find the problem. When I start the truck I dont get any gauges, and it starts in third gear. I dont have any first or fourths gear. The problem has gotten worse, I used to be able to restart and the problem whent away. Not now! I took it to the tranny shop but they couldnt get it ot not work. If I manually put the car into second it will start in second and I can shift to third. But starting out is dificult in third. It seems like sometimes if I turn the wheel it will catch and the gauges will come back but I still have a third gear start problem. And sometimes it runs perfect. Any answers?

You need to check the voltage outputs from the ignition switch. Make sure they each have 12 volts.
