Started up my car the other morning, picked a friend for work, stopped by the store, turne it off, got back in it and nothing. No click, lites dimmed, but no start. Battery hot, pushed it off, went to work. Could this be the starter or neutral switch. Plan on pulling off the starter and having it checked. Don't know about the switch. Thanks

I suspect that the starter is failing. Check that you have battery voltage at the big starter cable, and battery voltage at the smaller START wire at the starter when your assistant turns the key to START. If so, and the starter doesn't run, then it's faulty. Also, you could use a jumper lead from the positive battery terminal to energize the starter at the START terminal and see if it works without removing it from the car.
