So far sounds like the ignition switch or the starter had failed. Can you use a test light on the starter solenoid when someone is cranking to see if you have a signal ? If so the starter is bad. If no signal , do you have a theft light on the dash that flashes when cranking ?

We already replaced the ignition switch and the starter tests fine. No lights on dash.

Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
here are the schematics, have you checked the associated fuses and relays? after the ignition switch is replaced the theft system, has to be relearned.
