check out the wiring between the starter switch and the starter solenoid, check also for a good connection on the starter solenoid. a local shop may charge around $75 for this


I have done that...all good. Could it be the neutral safety switch?


Check harness under sterring column for ingtion pig tail tail connect can corriod clean connector have seen this on a lot of duster


all the wires appear good when the key is turned to start you can feel the relays both in the fuse box in the passenger side as well as feel them "click" in the engine compartment. I wired a "button from a hot wire to the starter solenoid, turn key on, push the button {starter starts car] not a fix but running out of solutions except a 200+ dollar bill at Buick Garage to have them diagnos.
