I parked this car and came back to drive it only to find that the switch would not engage the starter. All the other electrical items are working fine. What gives?

Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for power at the starter (smaller wire). You should have 12+v. If you do, the starter is bad, If there is no power, check the starter relay.
