2003 vibe won't start

Asked by Aug 25, 2015 at 10:15 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Vibe GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Manual. One day my car just decided not to
start, all electrical works, radio, lights and air
turn on with no issue. There is no turnover,
or any kind of noise when trying to start.
Attempted to jump the car, still won't start.
Checked all fuses and everything is intact.
Pulled the starter and tested at an auto shop
and appears to be in working order.
Not sure where to go next, please help.

Could be a bad tumbler switch or the transmission is not in Park or Neutral ... work the trans selector back and forth .. maybe the safety switch (Park/neutral) is stuck
