Van b1500 took to dealer couldn't figure out. Electric goes out when turning right from a stop. Almost stalls.
I am guessing it is the ignition as it is on the column. Opinion please or need information on changing out myself.
Thanks

Welcome to 2CarPros.

Have you checked to make sure there are no issues with main grounds between the body and engine? Also, does the check engine light stay on when the engine is running?

Let me know.

I'll check the grounds. No engine light comes on and there are no codes that show-up. They went to change out the ignition electric wire harness but the one I got at the store look like a newer model, wasn't correct.

Let me know.
