1986 325 wont start

I have a 1986 325. Turn key and engine does not turn over. Electric windows...won't work....coincidence??? I replaced the starter a couple of months ago so I doubt it is that, but the normal symptoms of a bad starter. One time, when I moved around the shifter while turning key over it started. Any help? Is there a safety switch somewhere?

Thanks,
Jeremy

maybe the wires/plug which connect to the transmission switch.

try to shut your door when you try the window and go under the hood and find the starter under the air intake and move around those wires to make a connection then turn it over if that doesnt work then make a better ground
