Alright so I left school tonight, my car started with no problem, drove fine. I got home turned the car off for a few minutes. When I went back outside and tried to start the car I got nothing. The power was good but no crank. I dont know much about cars right now, but my father knows a good amount so he came out and started the car under the hood with no problem. I think he said he took the ignition or something and bypassed it with a new wire and got it to start. Im not around him right now so when i know exactly what he did I will post it.
Has anyone else had this problem or know what it is? I was thinking the starter solenoid, but im not sure. Any help would be great.

what would be the problem? the starter? cause the starter still worked when he jumped it. has anyone heard of the "clutch neutral safety switch" going bad? or starter relay?

I looked for the write up, it just said disconnect the clip from the switch and jump the wires together. I tried that and it still didnt start.

would the starter still work from jumping the wires? my teacher said it sounds like ignition switch.
