First lets determine which circuit it is. Jumper the starting relay. If it is in good condition, the starter will turn the engine over. Make sure that the car is in neutral, the brake is on and the wheels are chocked. If nothing happens, then you have a problem with the circuit to the starter.
The entire circuit consists of the battery, starter relay, the starter and the wiring. Check all connections for good clean and tight connections. There needs to be acomplete circuit.
If the starter works, the relay circuit (on my 93 explorer anyway) has the following components. Power is fed from the ignition switch, to the clutch switch, to the anti-thert controller module (if installed) to the starting relay. Again, there needs to be a complete circuit.
On my 93 explorer, there is no switch on the stick.
