Do you have fuel pressure and or hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key?


Probably not the ignition switch anyway. If you get nothing at all, there is a good chance the starter solenoid is defunct. On that car, I believe it is part of the starter motor, so that is likely what needs changing.


Is the security light on?


Samuel, my security light is on. When I turn my key to start car I get absolutely nothing. No crank, no sound. Nothing. Ignition turns about half way over but no sound, no lights on the dashboard. Nothing. I cant even put the car in neutral to push it.. 99' Pontiac Firebird..
