Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My car started fine and then the other day went out to start it and wouldn't start. Checked the battery and it is fine. Also I have power to the rest of the electrical components, headlights, radio, etc.

I start with the coil or the starter. I say more and likely its the coil. You can have autozone or o'reillys check it for free. Both of them starter and coil.
Wasn't either one. Luckily my mechanic found the problem before it was too late. Seems the person that owned the car last had wired a toggle switch to the fuel pump as a "anti-theft device". But the wire was loose and would have resulted in a fire. My mechanic removed the switch and wire and rewired it like it was suppose to be. Thanks for your input anyhow.
