It was just all of a sudden one morning it wouldn't start. Headlights, dash lights, radio, windows work all come on. When I turn the key, nothing, no click, no nothing. I checked the battery and connections. I checked the connections to the altenator, as best as i could, I have had the alternator replaced a few years back. Please tell me it's something easy!!!

    Check for voltage at the starter solenoid when the key is in the 'crank' position. Should be 12 volts (or battery voltage). If not , check for power to and from ignition switch. Make sure it is in park or neutral.Check ALL fuses.
