Easy Top Wrench.....

T Bucket .... you're saying that the purple wire from the starter doesn't go thru the fuse box or a fuseable link? Mine does....or rather it goes thru the NSS thru the Ing Switch to the fuse box.

He stated the horn and lights work..... they also go thru the fuse box? so I'm confused by your statement.

I assume he has a cable running from the battery directly to the lg starter lug..... which doesn't have a fuseable link.... so that would leave two areas....... bad ground or no juice to the "S" terminal. Since the purple wire runs from the "S" terminal thru the clutch switch, thru the ing switch to the fuse box........ he stated the horn and lights work, so the fuse box should be getting pwr. If it didn't I'd agree could be a fuseable link....... unless I missed something here.

77GMCK25 brings up a good point, I didn't think about that...... very well could have a mis-aligned ing rod/switch..... There should be a electrical connector at the lower end of the steering column, connected by two bolts, remove the bolts and the actual switch will come off the rod. Place a small screwdriver in the slot and see if it functions as it should.....Accy, Run, Start....... if it does you just need to adjust the rod position in the switch when you bolt it back up.

If the jumper between the large pos lug and the s terminal works, I'd then locate and jumper the clutch switch, if that doesn't work, I'd go with the ing switch route.

In older vehicle the horn and lights didn't have fuses, since the inclusion of relays and computer control for everything they do. I probably should have looked it up but I get lazy.
