Car wont start.. or try to turn at all

(1994 Chevrolet Beretta)
in Elyria, OH on November 06, 2012
i replaced the ignition switch, swapped batterys, tested the starter, and checked all fuses. nothing happens. when i go to "start" the car... nothing. all you hear is the fuel injectors. no sound from the starter at all. all dash lights come on as they are soposed to, head lights are bright and tail/brake lights work. im lost and in need of some help. ill try anything

HOW WAS THE STARTER TESTED? IF, IF BATTERY FULL CHARGE HAVE SOMEONE TURN KEY TO START WHILE YOU TAP STARTER WITH HAMMER. IF IT STARTS THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO. IF IT DOES NOT START YOU NEED A MECHANIC.

Then you need a mechanic to check it out. Should take about 10 min.!!!

You will try anything huh? Try the crank bolt...does it turn? Try the starter wire....does 12V get there? And did you try to test the starter using a test light?

Check neutral safety start switch if auto,clutch safety interlock switch if manual.

do i try to start the can in neutral? if so i did, and it still didnt work

Try moving the shifter slightly while in neutral while turning the key.if nothing check voltage at the wire on the solenoid as you turn the key,should get 12V,if nothing and u have checked fuses,starter relay etc then suggest consulting a qualified mechanic to diagnose the electrical problem
