your problem lies in the ignition switch which is a major problem in all the 80 ,100 200 Se and SEL models. the fastest solution is to connect a common push switch directly to your starter solenoid, switch on the ignition and push the start button. it works even if your battery is down to 9 volts.. good luck. hennie
