Usually the ignition switch. When you turn the key to start full battery voltage (12 VDC) is applied to the coil. In the run position voltage goes through a resistor wire to apply about 6 or 8 volts to the coil. To test the ignition switch hook up a remote starter switch at the starter. Turn the key ti the run position. Crank over the engine using the remote starter switch. If the engine starts your ignition switch is bad. While you're hooking up the remote starter switch inspect the wiring at the starter. The ignition switch gets power directly from there. HTH. -Jim
