87 pathfinder, v-6, 210,000 miles

won't start, battery seems good-lights come on. Turn ignition on and no sound-no fuel pump, no starter-silent.

Checked appropriate fuses.

starter, solenoid, something funky?

all ideas appreciated

thanks in advance

Sounds like a bad ignition switch but does anything else work that must have the ignition switch on, like the radio. Is it automatic transmission or manual, cruise control? I have two '87 Pathfinders.... you got a voltmeter ... i may be able to tell what to check.

Thanks Joey
It's the starter solenoid. I whacked it with a pipe then it started.
i used to beat the crap out of my starter to start it, but it was the beginning of a few more problems...

you should replace your starter soon.... soon after i did that the alternator and ac compressor went.

just be sure to look for those too!
