There is only a couple of places it could be. 1. near the clutch pedal arm. 2. by the slave cylinder area if you car has one if not by the end of the cable near transmission

I have a 92 sentra lights come on but when i turn key nothing happens. Starter good ,relay good, head lights don't dim when you turn key . Car won't turn over at all

If by lights, you mean the dash lights come on, then ignition switch must be getting power. If dash is not working with key on, check the 30 amp fuse link which powers the ignition switch.
If switch is good and starter is good, the start wire from switch goes to, if automatic, to inhibitor relay (the park/neutral function) and then to starter. There is also an inhibitor switch on the shifter or on the transaxle that turns on the inhibitor relay when key is on and shifter in park or neutral. The inhibitor switch is powered by a 10 amp fuse D.
If you have a manual transmission, the start wire from ignition switch goes to the clutch interlock relay and then to the starter. This relay is turned on by the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal.
You can check for power on either relay, the inhibitor relay or the clutch interlock relay, with a test light. Pull the relay out, have the key held in start position. Now both relays would have power showing on two terminals where the relay plugs in. If inhibitor relay only has power on one terminal or no power at all, either ignition switch is not sending power or fuse D is out or the inhibitor switch is not working right. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad.
If the relay checks are good, check for power on the small wire to starter with key held in start. If you have power there, the starter solenoid must be out.

Problems starting

First of all...... Why do you have a ignition interlock device on your car?? Is it a breath analizer from the courts ?? If so..... this device may be the problem..(defective part). If it's not a court issue breath analizer, then remove it and see if the concern is still present ?!! So .... when you say that the car will not start,,,,, does the engine crank over and won't start ?? or you turn the key and the engine does nothing ??? it makes a difference .... I'll need to know this before I can help you !!

What problems will I hav wit a bad ignition switch on my ford 500

Several, like failing to activate the starter or failing to shut off the Ignition completely when the engine is off. Just depends on which terminal is the worst.

Now there is an Interlock switch which links the shift cable, Ignition switch and brakes for safety. Sometimes this switch, the Interlock, will make it impossible to use the starter when the Ignition key is turned to the start position.

The Interlock switch is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash. It often gets dislodged or broken by the Drivers' feet. Depending on your symptoms, the Interlock switch could well be the cause of your problems.

Please rate my info.

Cranks over with no keys in it

Hello, This problem can be either the starter Relay or the Ignition switch. There should be a small wire on the starter Relay. Disconnect this wire, its nickname is the "Tickler" and then reconnect the Battery. If the Battery arcs and the starter spins, then the internal parts of the starter Relay are fried. You need a new starter Relay. The Relay should need to get a signal from the "Tickler" to work.

If the starter does not turn when you reconnect the battery, you need to test the "Tickler" wire for power. Use a testlight or a Voltmeter and see if the wire has power and do not move the Ignition switch from the position when it was messing up. There should not be power in this wire. If there is power there, then the Ignition switch is messed up. If this is a newer car or truck; one of the Interlock switches at the top of the Brake lever under the dash can be crushed or out of position. If this is a stick-shift, there can be an Interlock contact on the clutch pedal lever.

Most of the time the Interlocks will be cutout switches, the Pos+ power is originating from somewhere else like the Ignition switch. But sometimes the Pos+ and Neg wires can both be in the Interlock and when the Interlock breaks, the wrong wires connect. So before taking apart the plastic cover on the steering column to get at the Ignition switch, make sure the Interlocks are not broken.

I hope my solution is very helpful in solving the problem.

Had starter tested and it is good. had battery tested and it is good also. checked all fuses and all relays all good. engine will not crank. i think the ignition switch is loose could this be the problem ?...

There is a switch that only allows the starter to work if the gearshift is in neutral or park.
Try wiggling the gearshift while you try to start the engine. If that causes the starter to engage briefly, you'll need to either re-align the switch or replace it.

1999 Ford Explorer XLT 5.0 AWD - starter will not engage. I hve replaced the starter/solenoid, ingition relay, ignition switch, neutral safety switch and battery. battery cables are clean and solid. I can...

If you replaced the solenoid was there one wire to the solenoid or two? If the new solenoid had two small posts did you connect the single wire to the S (starter) or I (ignition) side? If you connected to the I side this is your problem. If you had two wires were they swapped from original locations? If not check and see that you are getting electricity from the ignition switch to the solenoid. Have someone hold the key at the start position and measure if you have 12+ volts at the S side of the solenoid.

Where is the clutch switch located on a 1995 honda civic

There are two switches. The one you probably want is the starter/clutch interlock switch which is located at near the upper end of the clutch pedal. This switch engages your clutch. If engine wont turn over with clutch depressed and key to start, loosen the locknut and turn the cylinder clockwise to move the switch in closer to the clutch, try again. If problem persists, check ignition switch wiring for shorts/bad connections; there is no voltage from the starter relay to the switch, or no continuity between the two terminals on the switch, or the switch is bad. Hope this helps you out

1995 audi 90 will push start but won't start with key wonder if there is a switch or something that might cause this ?

Check the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal arm. You can jump across this switch to defeat the interlock function as a test to verify the switch is the problem. Also try pushing the clutch all the way to the floorboard when turning the ignition to start. If the switch is good, then check for power at the starter solenoid and relay.
