OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS STARTER PROBLEM

1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass • 200,000 miles

I have a 95 Olds Cutlass with a 3.1. My problem is it won't try to start. Came home one morning from work and was going out later that night. The car acted like the battery was dead when I tried to crank it, the radio and lights came on but no starter click or rotation. Noticed that the security light was blinking in the dash as well. I have cleaned the positive and ground wires at the battery and starter, had starter tested and it checked good, had battery put on a charger for several hrs. Was told at local parts store that the anti thief relay may be the problem. Could this be my problem or do I need to look else where? And if it is the Anti thief relay, where is it located? Thanks for any insight to this issue

Forget about the relay. Wild guess from a parts salesman, not a tech

you need to verify power to the little wire on the starter motor in the start position.

Thanks Roy

I checked for the power like you suggested and I did not get a reading when trying to start the car. Where do I need to check next?
