I have a 2009 Chevy Malibu, all electrical accessories work from the Heat/AC to the sunroof and heated seats. when I turn the key to start position I get nothing not even a click, also the service ESC light, the service Power Steering light, BRAKE light are on (no check engine though). Ive checked every fuse and relay, both plugs on the BCM and ECM there is no corrosion and has power to everything. When I check the Starter solenoid, with a test light, I get no juice in any key position. I am losing power somewhere but cant figure out where been searching for 3 weeks and don't know where to turn next, Please help.....

Are you using a new/different key? If so it must be programmed to the car before it will work. Sounds like the security system has locked down the car. HTH. -Jim

Nope, using the original key... The security light has never come on or flashed..... I also left out that I hooked it up to a scanner and get no communication....

If you didn't disconnect the negative (-) battery cable before starting the repair I suspect that a fuse has blown during the repair. Also, when you turn the ignition switch to the start position a "starter request signal" is sent to the BCM. The BCM then completes the circuit for the starter and cranks the engine. Check all the fuses. HTH. -Jim
