Question about Cars & Trucks
Today I noticed the fob for my 9-7x was coming apart. I snapped it back together but now it won't start the car. It works for the locks and when the key turns the radio and everything comes on but when I turn the key to the start position nothing happens.

SOURCE: will not start
Three things that i can think of that will cause that. One the wire from the starter solenoid is off. On my windstar that often came off... just a spade type push on clip. second is the starter may have failed.... third and actually least likely is that the motor is seized. there is one other item to check... the fuse for the starter. that is likely located in a fuse panel in the engine compartment near the battery. if the wire is off.... UNHOOK the battery before you attempt to hook it back on. It's usually obvious if it is off as you will see a stray wire hanging down from the starter location.
Actually i did note something you said that i nearly missed.... if that car has an engine immobilizer on it (part of the alarm system) confirm the alarm is off.

it sounds like the power wire came off or broke from the ignition switch ,if you can test each wire with the column
cover off,you should be able to determine which one powers the fuse for turn signals

Almost sounds like a fuse of some sort, maybe a all power relay, also try looking at the battery and see if all the electrical wiring are properly in place.
