No power...no crank..whats up?

Last time I tried to start I got a hard thud with no turnover. Brand new diehard battery. I do have driving lights but that's it. All fuses look good. After trying to start a good dozen times my key kind of got stuck in the crank position...no spring back. Is this a faulty ignition issue or new starter?

Ignition switch. Not sure what the loud thud was. Unscrew your dash cluster and investigate.

Well, you can always lead a hot to the starter to see if it is the starter-- they typically don't fail that way, but it is possible-- simple to rule out. I'd lean toward switch first though since you already have to dig into it.

If the motor was running before i would look at the starter solenoid next if the ignition wasn't the problem.

It was the switch. Thanks for posting that link Josh. Very easy after slotting the shear bolts!

Glad the fix was easy and cheap enough. Any idea what the loud thud was yet?
