Battery and Starter checked out fine, ignition switch okay, fuses fine, Switched relays around and still no start. I tried to start in neutral and in park. Went to QT and got in to start and it will not start. Any ideas on what to check next. Resistant on power side.2V Haven' checked ground yet. All guages and lights power on. Their is not cranking or clicking of anykind.

Could be the starter, starter relay, transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery condition and connections are good.

Will not crank at all. Nothing happens. I can hear the fuel pump prime. All the light turn on. All the fuses are okay.

Would the camshaft position sensor cause the car to not crank?

Starter check at AutoZone three times. Battery checked at Autozone. Recleaned the connection terminal with bakingsoda and water and a wire brush. I checked all the fuses. Did not see any fusable links. What is the best way to check the ignition switch? The best way to test neutral safety switch?

It ended up being an aftermarket keyless remote system that was faulty. Removed the aftermart system and it started right up.
