Yes that sounds like a bad igintion switch.


What about the soliendo wire?


The sylinoid is built into the starter,check the wires to stater again,but it sounds like the iginiton switch by your sayings.


OK so I checked the wiring again cleaned the wires from the battery checked the starter fuses on the metal teeth are black....

It ran after battery replaced,then quit,then you replaced starter thinking it was the issue,all i can read in to this,is check that new starter,and if it is good,it will be the iginiton,why i think this is a bad igintion will eat the battery,which it did,and now that you have good battery power it went ahead and eat the switch.


Ignition switch,25.99 autozone part number ls702
