It could be the ignition switch, or the starter reley, but make sure the battery is fully charged, and there are good clean & tight connections at the battery. Will it turn over if you try to jump start it?


If battery is fully charged and battery cables are cleaned and tight, try starting it directly from starter with screwdriver or wire from solenoid small wire to the terminal where battery cable is connected at the starter. This will tell u if ur ignition switch circuit is bad or bad battery cables.

I have the same problem but I changed my starter relay and ignition switch and still nothing

My dash lights wont come on either but I have the 302 and im haveing same problems


Don't know what year your vehicle is but could be the starter solenoid. Post a question to get help.
