**No crank at all/nothing/nada when key is engage to starting position

You sure its not a security issue

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

Are you just needing to move it?

How about put the Key in the "RUN" Position

And a jumper wire from the positive side of the battery, to the "S" terminal on the "SOLENOID" (follow your positive battery cable, it goes to the solenoid)

This will turn over the starter, provided the Solenoid and starter are "Serviceable"

It will engage and probably scare you. So don't***** back into moving engine parts!

WHERE DO I GET A JUMPER. You say?

JUMPER CABLES. Clamp one end on Positive Battery, clamp a nail/ screwdriver/ etc in the other end. Then momentarily touch the nail to "S" (a little terminal on the solenoid) long enough to turn it over, to start the engine

I HAVE NO CLUE WHERE YOUR SOLENOID IS LOCATED-IF IT'S HARD TO GET TO--FORGET WHAT I'M THROWING OUT TO YOU!

I'M MORE IN STEP WITH OLDER JEEPS AND FORDS. IN THE END, LISTEN TO RASMATAZ, HE IS MORE OF AN AUTHORITY ON NEWER STUFF, JUST THOUGHT THIS MIGHT WORK. RAZ?

Down side of this is even if you start it, what other systems have been compromised, in the accident?

Is it safe to drive/ do you have a fire extinguisher/ can you test drive in a parking lot?

Definitely go slow and be prepared for the unexpected, no following close.

Careful Now!
