Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident
we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill
level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to
get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.

We need to check for voltage to the starter and other loads to make sure the battery cables are good.

Thanks, Ron

the voltage at the starter is between 10.9 and 12 volts

the horn, headlights and flashers work. I replaced the starter relays and the battery is brand new with 12.3 volts. Nothing happens when the key is turned including no dash lights.

This sounds like a security problem now.

Not the ignition, but the starting system.
