I would focus on either the starter solinoid or the relay located near the steering column. Unscrew the Positive cable from the solenoid and touch it to the other big terminal on the solenoid to determine if itís the starter or the solenoid. If the starter turns its your solenoid, if not, its probably the starter. If it starts then your problem may be either the ignition switch or the starter relay, to see if itís the relay, first disconnect the relay, which is located right behind the ignition switch ( you will need to unscrew the cover panels)it can be marked Hella and it has a bunch of female slots. Once pulled make a little jumper wire & jump slot # 87 to #30 & then turn the key, if it starts you found your culprit. This was my problem and I just left the jumper in place. If it does not start then its probably the ignition switch which plugs into the ďTumblerĒ (the thing you stick your key into)..I hope this helps in some way...John L..email me if you like.
