Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am one of the techs here.If the vehicle won't start using the key, but will when jumping the starter directly, you will have a problem with either the ignition switch or neutral safety switch (auto trans) / clutch switch (man trans)
Expert:  Technician Chris replied 1 year ago.
Being the neutral safety switch is cheap and easy to replace, I would start there. Here is the procedure:Service and RepairUnscrew switch from transmission case, allowing fluid to drain into container.Move shift lever to Park and then to Neutral positions and inspect to ensure switch operating lever is centered in switch opening in case.Screw switch into transmission case, then add fluid to the proper level.Check to ensure proper switch operation.
