If that is the case then you should replace the Starter relay, well work on the cranking problem first,

also check for loose or corroded cables, if those are all good and its not the relay then you may need a new ignition switch.

Well the only lights that appear wen the key is turned forward is the oil light with the pic of a oil pan and the charge light with the pic of a battery on the bottom left hand corner where it says information center, the secriuty light stays on.

And note that the car is not on the key is just forward cause like I said the car does not start and I have had my starter to get checked today and was told my starter is good not bad, could it be my ignition switch?

The ign switch is part of the theft system, when you pull out the switch there will be an orange wire that hooks to it, if it is broke thats how the theft system reads your key, take an ohm reading of you key, the little slit thing in it, its a resistor, go to radio shack and buy the same resistor and put it in the orange wire, put the switch back in it and try to start it
