OK Dave, you the man! I did try jumping but no success. I then checked the battery cables, pos first, was ok, and neg second. The neg had what I thought was minimal corrosion on it but I took it apart, scrubed it with a wire brush then made a past like solution of baking soda and water and scrubbed it showing the bright copper color. Washed it off and reconnected. Not being too optimistic I turned the ignition key and imagine my surprise when my brand new $111.41 starter, that I personally installed, WORKED! (Let's not talked about maybe I should have tested the old starter before I bought a new one.) Do I get a second question for my $15, like why do I only have one speed (high) fan motor.
P. S. There's a comic named Red Green from Canada and his slogan that I've adopted is "If you can't be handsome, at least be handy." I'm working on being handy.
