any recent work done to the car? A possible cause is a bad body to engine ground

If an automatic it could be the neutral switch or how it's connected.

If you have tried all of the above and she still will not start, you may have to do some basic system checks;

1.  With the ignition switch in the off position check for voltage at the places there should be 12v.

2.  With the ignition switch in the on position check for voltage at the places there should be 12v.

3.  With the ignition switch in the start position(will require a second person) check for voltage at the places there should be 12v.

Hopefully, this will help track down the problem.

This situation sounds like an ignition switch problem OR the wiring from the ignition switch to the solenoid (my money is not the ignition switch).

Happy hunting.

Excuse me. My statement SHOULD have read "my money is on the ignition switch". My computer refuses to type what I'm thinking.
