Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with/

When you say the starter does nothing. Is the starter turning the engine over but the engine is not starting? Or is the starter spinning but not engaging the flywheel? Or is the starter not spinning at all when you turn the key?

The starter does not spin at all. What about the check engine error codes?
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

The code would not be for the starter not spinning, that is something else. The first thing here is you have to get the starter spinning first. Is there any clicking when you turn the key? Do you have a decent hand held volt meter and do you know how to take voltage measurements?

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Also, what is the story on the engine, when did it last start? Did anything happen to it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Last started on thursday. Battery is good. I cleaned the terminals. What is the error code?
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

The error code is for the crankshaft position sensor.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No clicking.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
would crank sensor stop starter?
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

No it would not.

Are you getting any power to the keyswitch? If you turn the key to run, do the gauges come alive?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
everything works but the starter
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Have you tried holding the key to start with 1 hand and wiggling the shifter with the opposite hand?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it does nothing. I've shifted back and forth. nothing lets the started spin. No clicks nothing.
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

I had asked you earlier if you have a decent hand held volt meter and do you know how to take voltage measurements? I never got a response back from you on that.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have one and know how to use it.
