Should be connected to the solenoid at the starter.

Thats what I thought but its all the same guage right there. Trying to get this no start problem fixed is turning into an international manhunt. Battery is good, getting power to the starter, brand new ignition switch and nothing happens when I turn the key. Fuses are all good, could the fuse panel go bad and not blow all the fuses? Maybe the ignition coil or module? I am at a loss here.

if its not turning over it s not a coil or module. check to see if your getting juice to the small solonoid wire when key is turned to start. if so it could be the solonoid is bad. is it clicking at all. u may have a bad ignition switch. like u say the fuse is usually in the solonoid wire but could be between the battery and the wire junction box if u have one. not sure on the 80s models.

I had to replace a chunk of mine in the same area a few years back (rubbed through on the top of the starter).

I'll take a look tomorrow morning and let you know where mine is.

Yea, it is not turning over at all, its almost like it is getting no power. But my battery is good, my headlights come on, but nothing that requires the key to be turned on will work. I just put a brand new ignition switch in it yesterday and it still doesn't help. I put a multimeter to the starter with the battery in and its reading 12.6v so its getting power to it.

so do you have vats or security system in it? if so it may be the resistor on the key has failed or needs cleaned. also could be the pickup inside the key slug that reads the key is failing or a bad wire or connection in the column.
