Neutral safety switch, if automatic trans equipped.
Start voltage leaves ign sw as a Purple wire to n/safety. Leaves n/safety as a purple wire to solenoid. Otherwise, if manual trans, purple wire continous to solenoid.
Now, if all original equipment & alternator, the following is true: power from battery via red pigtail on positive post to junction block next to battery to horn relay (under washer bottle, driver side), to red wire to drvr side firewall connector, also another red wire to alternator. Through firewall to fuse block plus "Y'd" (GM used a crimp) under dash, location is between firewall and ign switch. The Y splits to lights and to ign switch. Return to battery is ground.
Next attempt to start, turn lights on to see if they glow. If starter engages, then lights will dim some and starter will crank, if battery and its connections are in good repair.
