Battery or ignition switch perhaps?

You can jump the starter on the car to confirm it has the juice to crank. Then you need to check the wires out of the starter key switch to see if you have juice coming out. You could also check at the starter relay.

1997 Ford F150 5.4L V8 engine wont' start after new battery put in. Alternator or Starter?

If it jump starts, the starter is good.
You need to check the voltage at the battery with the engine running (after disconnecting jumper cables) to see if the alternator is bad. Voltage should be at least 14vdc.
You can also remove the alternator at home and have it tested at your local car parts store.Always disconnect the negative battery cable before removing the alternator.

Had starter checked and it is good.have to turn key back and forth several times before car doesnt make any noise or anything,it does nothing at all until the 2nd or 3rd time sometimes

Could be a worn out ignition switch & the
starter solenoid could be bad

Don't personally care how or what was tested,
based on what I see on this site, not much is done
correctly, when you pay someone

I have the same problem,own a 2005pt,took starter off,had it testted at a parts store,it tested good, replaced battery(new),put key in , all lights work,windows,radio,headlights,when i put key in switch...

Check the leads to the starter motor again. There should be the negative battery lead, and two more wires. One has to be faulty. The battery is obviously OK.

If the wires are correct, undo the starter and slide it out, rock the car forward when it is in gear. This will move the flywheel. The flywheel might not be engaging with the starter teeth, hence nothing.

Vote for me if this helps, thanks.

Nothing engauges when you turn the key.

first check all fuses if good go to your starter solenoid take off the ignition wire usually i terminal with someone helping have them turn key to start holding while you take your test light to see if the wire lights the light if it lights put back on the solenoid now test the pos cable on the starter should have juice if not it is fed of the starter solenoid trace all wires back search for burnt inline fusible link there white or black oval shaped test both sides of wire if one side has juice the other doesnt the link is junk they usally burn thru were it looks like a welding arc check all also pull on both sides of wire to see if they come out of link goodluck

Wont turn over

When the starter was tested I assume the solenoid was tested also. There is a fusible link going from the ignition to the solenoid. It’s the wire with a larger plastic block on it.
