it might be the starter motor if the dash lights come on when trying to start

Been there has it, and if your battery is 2...3...years old not a waste to get a new one regardless. But can you answer Ben? You have juice anywhere?

I have juice to every thing but with a new battery and still nothing won't even try to crank over

I have taken the starter out and had it tested and it was fine now I am back to square one. The guy at Orilleys told me to check the switch commutateur interruptor and the one they gave me is the wrong one.

hello I had the same problem for me it turned out to the igniton switch mounted on the upper steering colum just before it enters the dash board just remove the plastic cover around colum and follow the wires right to it the part cost around $12.00 and two torx screws and your done, make sure to check that the key hits all positions before you close it up, hope this helps, mike
