Hello,
When you turn the key to start does anything happen, like does the starter engage and spin the engine, or nothing at all when you try to start it?

Starter doesn't engage dash lights come on

Hi,
Sure sounds like the starter is bad but...
We can figure this out real easy if you have a volt meter to use?
If not we can still try but the meter will be much quicker...let me know please.

Thanks for testing that for me.
We have now narrowed it down to needing a new starter. Good job on the testing!
