Went to start the car, lights come on, radio works, but when you turn the key to start no dash board warning signals turn on and no turn over(nothing...)What could this be? any suggestions? put new starter in 1 year ago also new battery. help, help, help....
Could be a VATS problem. Does the security light come on when you turn the key? Could be a neutral safety switch problem. You might try jiggling the shifter to see if that helps. Beyond that it'll take a volt meter and a schematic to pinpoint the problem.

I have a 96 that would not turn over. The car would power up (everything got power but the car would not start). The security light activated and would stay on for a day or so. Then sometimes the car would start. I tried making a new key but it did not solve the problem. I ended up having to replace the ignition lock cylinder. When I removed the original cylinder, I found that the two very thin wires were damaged. The problem is now fixed.
It wasn't that hard to replace, just remember where all the parts go and have a steering wheel puller on hand. Hope this helps
Agree with others' suggestion on VATS. You should be able to start the engine after the first attempt waiting a min of 3 minutes and try again to start with the same key.
Not only do you need a steering wheel puller, but you need a lock plate pusher to remove the retaining ring and Torx screwdriver set. All tools can be bought from Harbour Freight for under $25.
Just keep track of disassembly order and reassemble in reverse order. You do have to pull out on the turn signal lever = limit the amount of stroke - pull to far and fast, the harness is broken.
Upon reassembly, be sure to route the combination switch wires/harness away from rotating parts - smoke will occur when wires get wrapped around the steering shaft - ask me how I know.
