Is the engine spinning with the key switch? Just not starting? Or the keyswitch will not engage the starter?

key switch does nothing
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 10 months ago

OK, 6 volt or 12 volt? Do you have battery voltage to the keyswitch? Do you have battery voltage to the starter solenoid from the battery ?
