Question Taurus No Start

Working on a '92 Ford Taurus that doesn't do anything when you try to start it. New starter and new ignition switch under the steering column. All lights and dings work. Battery is good as is the ground and connections. Could this be the Neutral Safety switch? Only thing I haven't changed yet and would like to get input before doing it. Maybe someone that's had same or similar problem could give some clues as to what else it could be besides that also.

Assuming the new starter came with a solenoid.

See if you are getting power to the large terminal on the starter while turning the key. Also make sure you are getting power to the small terminal (solenoid lead). If not get a wiring diagram and make sure you are getting power to the starter relay, if you are the neutral safety switch is fine.

before checking all of that other stuff put the car in nuteral and try to crank. I have seen cars not crank while in park but when you put it in nuteral it fires right up. if that doesn't work then trace out all of the above.

Just to be clear, the new parts were an attempt to solve the no start problem?

If it's a standard I think the switch your looking for is connected to the clutch pedal

How old is the battery and how did you check it?
They can check out fine with a simple voltmeter, but in fact be pooched
