Fuses should be labelled, and if not, just remove each one at a time to find the bad one.

you can also use shrinkable wire butt connectors but I would go to either autozone or advance or somewhere even wal-mart and get a 2 wire polarized connector for a few bucks and cut all the wires and put the new connector on..use black tape to cover the bare wires for now..after all is just a light..

It is located to the left under the steering wheel quite a ways. Took me awhile to locate it, but when I found it, it was very easy to read compared to others I have seen.

Could be the starter solenoid mounted on the starter, the neutral safety switch, or the key switch. You would need to test the solenoid for power from the key when it fails to crank.

Hi there:
You wll have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
