1986 Chevy Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Hi, the problem is 2 weeks ago when I would shut off the van and than try to start it again there would be no power at all, than I would take the shift move it up and down put it in park and pull up on the shift it would show lights and start. This van also has a tilt steering wheel. Im guessing that the saftey nutural switch is in the steering wheel, not on the transmission. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Hello, my first thought is the ignition switch, if your saying the dash lites won't come on, till you fool with it.

The neutral switch is on the side of the tranny. Shouldn't effect your dash lites.

The ignition switch and lock cylinder are two different parts, one part may effect the other. I'd probably check the feed to and from the ignition switch.
