I disconnected the connectors from both switches and checked for power on both wires (for each connector) and get nothing when connected to a test light.
1) Should there be power going to these connectors when the key is in the RUN position?
2) How difficult is it to replace the upper switch?
3) What else should I check?
I checked both fuse boxes and they all look fine. Battery has plenty of juice as well. HELP!!! thanks all!!

the other the starter inhibitor
Both switches go "closed"
when the clutch pedal is depressed.
As a test, take the connector off the switch
and short the contacts with a paper clip
(better yet a short piece of wire with the
See if this allows the car to crank.
If not you may have other issues
corroded bat cables/connections
ig switch going south
Hope this helps.

You are the cat's meow when it comes
stepping up to the "here's the hot skinny" plate.
As you can see the clutch switch need to be closed
to allow the "starter interlock relay" to engage,
thus providing power to the starter solenoid.
This interlock relay may be your problem
or the switch.
Shorting the switch will take it out of the loop.
(Thanks Porc, I have the same issue with my 94)
