from what my automotive electrician told me, it'* possible that the wire that runs through the column for the VATS is broken. he said the wires are very thin, and with tilt wheel it'* quite easy to break them on an older car. i actually had mine bypassed (i know some of you guys frown on that!) so you might want to have the inner workings looked at by a professional

That was the trick................I took the steering column apart and yup the wire was broke at the end of the key cylinder soldered and new piece of wire on and away she went......listen thanks for all your help guys
