My '87 won't start. Even when key is turned, won't even make noise. lights work, New battery, starter checks out, but with no hot when key is turned.  Possible problems???  I'm at a loss.  Any help appreciated.

got any codes from the computer??????  if you run into a code 46 or 58... those are anti theft system codes..

start there..

here is the wiring diagram for the starter..

you have the starter enable relay... that is controlled by the vats module...

you have the clutch switch or the transmission range selector switch ..

can you find the fuse marked crank????   are you getting power there when you turn the key to the crank position ????    

post what you find....     i will be away tomorrow morning .. be back in the later afternoon.. if you need more help...
