Your welcome.

OK its been checked already not could it be the ignition switch itself

Their a box clicking could that cause it not to start

Might be the neutral safety switch, turn the key to the on position and put the car in neutral, try to start. if it starts then safety switch is bad.

Won't start in neutral

The starter cranks, correct?

Yes checked

Someone told me its in the key switch

if it were the ignition switch it probably wouldn't crank, check if fuel pump is working, have someone listen at the fuel cap,turn key to on position but do not crank, the pump should make a humming sound for a second then shut off

Fuel pumps good

I think I'm about to give up lol

Check all fuses to ecm

OK what is ecm

7,475

The ecm controls all the engine functions through the use of sensors

I took it had it put on computer their trying to say its the starter and the steering column telling me I had to replace all before it will start not sounding right, saying replacing the key switch wouldn't work

That doesn't sound right at all, did they give an explanation as to why?

No they didn't

But I'm requesting a print out for where they put it on computer,going to have a friend check it out because he said it didn't sound right also
