My 95 prelude won't start! We checked the battery so that's not it. The starter is good and I just bought a new altinator cause my old one tested bad but I installed that one and I still have the same problem. I turn the key and all the lights inside come on but nothing else. The key won't turn any further. It doesn't click or anything. I'm not the best with electrical problems but I think that might be it. Anyone have any suggestions or maybe know what the problem is??

My car won't start, I turn the key and absolutely nothing happens, no crank, no noise whatsoever. The lights work, the radio works, the fan comes on, the only thing I noticed was when I check the battery gauge it says 10.9 V could that be the problem?
