Ok up to date:
replaced solenoid last month all worked well until this week.
Using key start no power to solenoid.
Can start by jumping battery to solenoid wire.
Car runs well after start.
No loose connections, checked gear select switch.
Which wire from gear select switch goes to purple (solenoid)?
Yeah, ignition switch module located on steering column adjacent to head light dimmer switch.
On back two plugs into ignition switch.
Rod to activate start (on switch housing) works smoothly from run to start posistion of key.I replaced this ignition switch module about 5 years ago.
Thanks for your rapid replies.
