    "I’m sorry captain, but we’ve got no power. The dilithium crystals have fused and the transporters are down.”.......

    I Just want to know where the dilithium crystals are???
    Because as it says....I've got no power. The car will start and run...but there is no power to the dash or accessories....? Fuse Box??? Flux Capacitor???
    Its a 69 Sport Fury...and I guess this explains why the dash was apart when I got it...!!!!
    Appreciate the help guys..... Mopars are new to me with this sort thing.Was hoping it was something simple as I remember when I learned about the voltage regulator on my old chevy...that was an experience... !

    Have him check the firewall connector block
    Many a Mopar has suffered from the fried wiring syndrome

    Good News and Bad News. The good new is you DO NOT have a problem with your Flux Capacitor. (By the way your car came with the early version). Bad news check the ACC. terminal out of your ignition switch, it probably burned internally.

    I have a full ignition switch assembly if it turns out that you need one
    It’s from a 73 Newport though it should work

    1969 Sport Fury, Ignition switch is mounted to the dashboard, not the steering column.

    Remove the lower dash cover, and you should be able to check the back of the switch without removing it from the car.

    Which could explain why there’s no power to the dash since it’s not in the car?:lol:
