Thanks Brett,

No Click sounds like the switch.  Anybody have an idea how much that should
cost or how hard it would be to do?, didn't see how in the Bentley.

thanks again,

Since you said stuff doesn't die when you turn the key, that rules
out the battery and terminal corrosion on the battery.

Do you hear a loud click from under the hood when you turn the key to
start?  If not, switch is busted.  If so, the ground strap on the
starter has probably corroded through(pretty much #1 cause of death
for I-5 starters).
