Engine wont turn over. No power is going to the "command wire" to the starter when we hit the ignition switch. We can "jump" the command wire on the back of the fuse box, and hear the solenoid click. We have replaced the starter relay in the fuse box, but still no power to the command wire. It seems that the probem is somewhere from the fuse box to the ignition switch. How can we tell if the ignition switch is bad, and not routing power to the solenoid?

I have an 1989 jeep comanche. It had an ignition switch bypass. I took it off and replaced the switch and the relay.

1996 Ford E 250 Van no start no crank. I have replaced the starter relay (fender mounted) and the neutral safety switch. I have power going to the ignition switch, back lights, but no power to the neutral safety switch. If I remove the ignition switch, how can I tell if it's bad? What more can I do besides push it over the nearest cliff? Thank you Steve Martin

1999 Altima A/T with factory alarm wouldn't start. Showed power from ignition, shorted out starter, car started. Swapped out 6-pin Inhibitor Relay switch, no start.

Put jumpers on all pins (1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6 with relay) and grounded #2 pin (ground side of relay coil) and car started, so believe problem is Neutral Safety Switch.

Have checked all fuses and fuseable links, replaced starter. Have 12V coming in to ignition. Have 12v at accessory lead at ignition switch. When turn key to start get 7.5v at other lead (brown wire).

1996 Isuzu Rodeo will not turn over. Battery is good (new) starter is good (checked at three places), relay is good, (same relays for nearly everything on the vehicle; switched from something I knew was good), power wire to starter carries same volts as battery. The smaller wire that should power when the ignition switch is turned to "start", however, does not show a reading when the switch is turned to start.
