Question 98 Grand Caravan won't Start

I have a 98 Dodge Grand Caravan AWD that won't start.
3.8L
When the key is turned to the ON position I get all the normal lights on the dash except the Odometer reading, it's blank.
When the key is turned to the start position nothing happens.
I've checked all the relays, fuses, and obvious stuff.
I jumped the starter relay next to the battery and the starter works fine.
Anyone have any advice?

As for history the same thing happened when it was at the body shop a month or so back, they gave up on it and called me but before I got there they called back and said it worked. ( Sweetheart backed into a tree.)

Nobody answered you. Hmmm.

Could be ignition switch or the neutral safety switch.

Thanks for feedback. I just got the elec. Schms. I'll be going through them. I've looked at all the real easy stuff, this doesn't look good.

I didn't dissapear. I've just been preocupied with the problem. After several days of pulling on wires, chasing diagrams and such I found someone else on Dodgeforums with the exact same problem. Well in my car the problem went away by itself and I could recreate it. The other person indicated it was a alarm arm switch in the door. I didn't try that but intend to.
