The link between the ignition lock and the ignition switch can get worn, and not turn the switch far enough to engage the starter.

The fourteen-pin connector near the jumpe start terminal is a common cause of a no-starter condition. Check and clean it. If you apply a momentary contact from the jump start terminal to the yellow wire in position one of the connector (the side that runs down to the starter) the starter should operate. WARNING! There is no safety interlock - the engine will start with the car in gear.

If the starter operates with the jump start connection, the problem is before that - switch, start relay (automatics) relay bridge (five-speeds), connection. If the starter will not operate when the yellow wire to the start solenoid is energized, the problem is battery, cable, ground, or starter.

Have been busy lately, so I haven't had time to mess with the 928. I took a video though, of the problem I am having:

Any suggestions?

Note that the car would fire up BEFORE I replaced the Ignition Switch! I tried the new one, and old one, and it will not fire up! Electrics work fine, and you can hear the fuel pump hum. I have tried a lot of different things, but I am thinking the brown connector piece that the Ignition Switch inserts into needs to be replaced? Maybe something with the wires?

Post #18 told you how to determine if the problem was before or after the connector on the fender, which would immediately cut your testing in half. Did you do that test? If so, what were the results?

Okay. I took the plastic piece that holds the pins in, aaprt and they all just fell out.. Unfortunatly I do not have a manual yet, so is there anything I can find that shows the correct placement that the pins should insert?



Also, I obviously notice the yellow wire, but where is the jump start I should test it on?
