I get a head scratcher:

Stupidly, this morning I pulled the e-brake handle out very far, and now it is stuck. While turning and pushing it back in, it stopped about half way (fortunately the cable is stretched enough that the brakes are no longer engaged) and the truck totally went dead. Engine stopped, lights off, no power to anything.

I can get power back by gradual adjustments to the handle from its current position (move it back out a hair or two, and power comes back).

HELP! I am thinking maybe something knocked the ignition cable out? Suggestions please on what I should look at! :confused:

Update - Quick Fix. The tab on the e-brake that trips the plunger switch for the dash light had caught on a stray wire. Dunno what that wire is (for another day...) but I tucked it out of the way and was able to fully disengage the e-brake lever, and the truck starts and runs normally.
