The "acc" position of the ignition switch on my 75 Coupe quit working.  The radio now only works when the switch is in the "run" position. I have sense replaced my steering column, which has a new ignition switch, and the "acc" still is not active.

Anyone have an idea of what may have happened?

I'd start with checking the fuse box.

The fuses are good at the fuse box (I had my mechanic check -- I can't even see up in there; I don't know how he can. . .)

Do the power windows work in the ACC position?

In mentioning the fusebox, I was referring to making sure there were no connectors/wires hanging in air, that should be connected to one of the "ACC" terminals on the fusebox.

Ah, I only wish I had power windows. . .

I'll take another look tomorrow to see if I can see any dangling wires.

Thanks!
