Won't start or won't crank over.


Lights on does not a good battery make. If it won't crank, it's possible that the neutral/start switch on the transmission is defective, the ignition switch (the electric one on the column way up under the dash) is inoperative, the engine is frozen or that the starter, battery cables, solenoid has failed. There are a plethora of things to check. There are no ignition fuses.
