IGNITION SWITCH

Pontiac Bonneville

Sir:

I have a 1963 Bonneville which will not turn over using the ignition switch. The battery is good and the starter has been rebuilt. I have also replaced the ignition switch. The switch works all accessories. The only way I can get the car to start is to turn the switch on and jump the starter by going directly from the battery to the small wire on the starter.

Could the wire going from the ignition switch to the starter be bad?

Could be a bad wire, but would suggest checking for a ign fuse or bad relay before attempting to check the wires continuity. Good luck to you!
