If everything electrical in a 1999 F-150 appears to shutdown, is the problem a fuse/relay?

Asked by Feb 04, 2017 at 07:44 PM about the 1999 Ford F-150 XL Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I attempted to start my 1999 F-150.  When I turned the ignition switch, everything electrical appeared to shutdown.  In about 5 minutes, the dome lights came back on.  I attempted to start the engine, and the same thing happened.  I waited another 5 minutes and the dome lights came back on.  I attempted to start the engine and the same thing happened a third time.  This time, nothing electrical appeared to come back.  The battery is new  and not discharged.
