When I try to crank, the ignition switch just turns without engaging the starter. The battery is charged and the switch seem loose.
Check starter fuse and relay first under the hood
I'll try that
It isn't that. When I get in the cat I could move the shifter without the key being in. I think it's something to do with the switch itself
Sounds like the column is physically broke, if you can get under the dash and inspect the column, locate the shift cable and mounting bracket, see if it is loose or damaged
Ok I'll try that
Would that be the case with the column even if the shifter is mounted in the floor board.
Ok that changes things, you probably just have a bad shift cable
Ok I'll try that out after work, thanks.
