Starting Problem

My car does not want to turn on. When I try to start it all the lights function normally but when I turn the key it wont start. I had a new starter put in a couple of months ago and thinking the problem was the ignition switch I changed that as well. When I put in the new ignition switch it turned on fine until 2 days later the problem started up again. I'm puzzled by this anybody know what the problem might be?

Any other symptoms? Hows the battery? Alternator?

Have your alternator tested. Check all your fuses, and your wiring. Look for a short or a loose ground connection.
