Could be the key switch, or the neutral safety switch.
Try cranking it in neutral.
You may have to trace the circuit from the key switch to the starter to find the problem. Also the ground connections between the engine and battery.

    Well then you will have to use a test light or meter and trace the circuit from the key switch to the starter. I am assuming the anti-theft system is not the cause.

    I am also assuming the starter and engine are not locked up.

SOURCE: 97 lincoln wont start

usually if you have power it may be a fuel problem, when you turn your key to the on position you should hear your fuel pump come on, if not it could be the fuel pump relay under the hood or a possible bad fuel pump or bad connection on the fuel pump. hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Ford

The solenoid or starter relay could be defective, this is located on the passenger fender. Also, the ignition switch could be faulty.

Other possibility is the Neutral Safety Switch (Automatic Transmissions) or the Clutch depressed switch are disconnected, or broken.

On vehicles with EEC-IV there can be a problem with the PCM module, remote but possible; usually this device is located under the glove box and behind the right kick panel.

Are you check the fuel system (fuel presure, fuel filter clean, etc. etc.).

Keep us updated.

SOURCE: acts like battery is dead

If you replaced just the cables to the starter, then check the ground cable and make sure it is secured. If it is , loosen it and tighten it back down. Corrosion can and will cause this. let me know

Possible internal starter problem. Try tapping on starter motor while key is held in crank position. If vehicle starts, suspect a starter motor problem and replacement will be required

92 tercel wont start.

Make sure the white wire to the pump has a good ground connection to the chassis. Then trace the power through the circuit opening relay. This is the most likely problem, as this is a dual relay. The relay coil gets battery positive from the starter relay, which you know is working or the starter would not turn. Check to make sure the white wire has a good ground connection. see diagram below.

Car only starts sometimes

The start circuit from the ignition switch to neutral safety switch to the solenoid on the starter might be bad. Look for power there at solenoid or at neutral safety switch when it doesn't want to crank over.

Have a 1994 grand jeep cherkeet larado and it wont start started fine yesterday check battery , fuses all good

you may have a bad starter solenoid.using a test light at the starter the light should be lit on the large wire terminal and with someone trying to start the car yhou should have the light on when the key is turned to the start you have a volt meter you should have battery voltage on the large wire and the same on the small wire when the key is in the start can try tapping the starter when someone tries to start the car.if it starts then replace the starter.its the most common problem.

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.
