We shiped a Cadillac Escalade to Guinee Bissau, West Africa and no dealer there.
The SUV got there after a month sailing from Jacksonville with dried out batterie...We charged the batterie and start it. Runs well except that radio, A/C and all dashboard gauges dot not work when engin start...They will work only on ignition. Could somebody help resolve those issues as no way to have somebody there who knows how to fix.

If you fly me there all expenses paid for a few weeks I'll have a look at it lol! I would start by checking that all 12V power is present at the connector (side I/P) from the ignition switch. For sure all is well once key is in ignition position, but maybe not so after the truck is started? Its like holding the switch in the start position. 12V is cut off the orange (ACC heater) and brown (radio). Could simply be an ignition switch issue. Check and post back.
