    So i get up today run some errands come home to get my digital camera to go download some pics. So i run inside come back out turn the key.....NOTHING. The battery is all the way up at 14 until you turn the key the it goes down to 12 which is what it has always done so the problem isnt in the column im guessing. I go back inside and get my favorite tool (hammer) and go beat on the starter and still not a peep. Everything else is coming on just no sound or anything from the starter. WTF? I would take it off and test it but im 15 miles away from my shop and have no tools at home so i was just wondering if anyone had a suggestion or the same thing happened to you. HELP i hate sitting at home.
    thnx

    Are you sure it's all the way in park? I've done that number more than I care to admit :blush:
    Also, I had to replace my neutral safety switch a while back. Same thing happened. Put the key in, turn, and nothing...Popped in the new switch, and eureka! Just a couple suggestions...

    If I'm not mistaken, dropping voltage with the key in start means the neutral start and ignition switch are both working right, as the drop in voltage is from the load from the starter.

    this sounds exactly like a problem i had. a wire from a fusible link was shorting out. it became a huge problem until i found it out, and then it took about 10 mins start to finish to cut, solder, and clean up. check the wire from the distributer to the fusible link on the firewall.
