Car won't start. Replaced battery but has same problem. I took to AutoZone and battery, alternator and starter motor all test good. I have plenty of juice to operate power windows so battery is not dead. It started with jumper cables once but will not do that now. Any ideas.

No crank at all/nothing/nada:

Could be the starter relay, park and neutral switch/transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery and connections are good. Note:If it doesn't apply disregard.

I have a galant that won't start. I car was running and then just started making a sound like the starter was sticking so I cut it back off when I got in the car I smelled something like wires burning I then found it was the starter switch had burned out. I replaced it and the car still wont start. The battery volt is 12.4 the end are clean. And the starter is new. Everything else works fine on the car and no fuses are blown. Whats the problem?

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, ECM, Ignitor cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
