Follow battery pos. cable over to the starter solenoid mounted on the firewall, have a helper turn key to START, does this solenoid click? Post results for more info. Also is it an auto. trans. or stick shift? If stick apply park brake and be SURE it is in NETURAL with key OFF before messing around with this solenoid!!! Let us know what you find for more testing advice.
