Ford Escort ZX2
I go to turn my car on. I have power, but it will not start. No clicking. Took starter off, it was bad. Put it back on. Also, took a new battery, put in my car from truck. Still same thing. What could be my problem?

There should be two main posts on your starter solenoid which have wires attached to them. The main one getting power from the battery. The other is the energizer from the ignition switch. Test the starter by jumping these two posts with a screwdriver (briefly), to see if the engine will turn over. If this works, this is likely a problem with the ignition switch or starting mechanism controlled by the ignition switch. Ensure you are only touching the two posts with the screwdriver or sparks will ensue.
