Sounds like your starter. I have the same problem, when I turn the key, I hear a click coming from the relays beside the fuses. Try to have someone tap on the starter with a piece of wood while you try to start it. If the starter engages or at least makes a noise you have found your problem.

i had a problem like this also. everything turned on but it wouldnt crank or anything. the guy i bought the car checked for spark and wasnt finding any. he found out that the harness that plugs into the coil was partially disconnected. a little retaining clip broke so we just zip tied it to keep it completely pushed on. its worth a shot because this is the same problem i had. we never did get why it wouldnt turn over though.....hmmmmmm :rolleyes:

if you fuses and relays make clicking noises, its starter or something like that. if you can't hear anything, its distributor, plugs or wires. keep this in mind!!

I'm having the same problem. when I turn the key, it clicks once and that's it. If it clicks once does that mean the fuses and relays are working, or would it be a repeated clicking noise?

The lights don't dim and all the dash lights come on, but after trying to start the car multiple times, all the lights die out like the battery just ate it. Then I unhook the battery, reconnect it and the battery has juice again, but the car still won't start. I'm going to replace the battery and cables.

Do you think I need to look at the starter/solenoid?
