i have a 1998 Mitsubishi Pajero Pinin. 1.8l GDI petrol automatic. it was just purchsed by my mother and she later found out that the headgasket was blown. i set out to repair it. i stripped it down to the head. recored the blown radiator, skimmed and cleaned the head, replaced the gasket and headbolts, while i was at it i did the timing and replaced the water pump. i put it all back together went put the battery on with a jumper pack in cse the battery was dead and turned the key and there was no sign of life whatsoever. no lights on the dash no turning no clicks nothing.
i have sinced check the continuity in all of the grounds and they were fine, checked all of the connections, they seem to be fine too, i checked all the relevant fuses they were fine too. the battery is charged. the jumped the starter to see if the wire there had any problems but is span up the engine like a champ so nothing wrong there.
i did also check to see if there were 12 volts at the ignition switch
and found nothing in any wire when i turned the key, also i checked for continuity in the ground wire going into the switch and it was not continuous here. is this where the problem is??
i hadnt touhed the igition switch until this new problem arose and it was prevelant before the headgasket replacement.
does anyone know what is causing this i cant figure it out, i have checked and cleaned all electrical connections in the engine bay several times and still nothing.
i appreciate any advice i can get
