Run a wire from the battery to the starter and see if it will turn over. If it does, you either have a bad ignition switch/module or a bad neutral safety switch.


the battery is under the seat and the started is under the intake manifold so how would I do that


Well if you can access the starter, you can cross the two terminals with a screw driver and it should turn over. Like in this video:


If starter is under the intake, then I don't think you'll be able to access it without doing a ton of work. Wow, what a bad place for a starter. I guess you'll have to cringe and bring it to the shop. I think to access the neutral safety switch, you have to drop the transmission pan.


okay thank you so much
