Ignition light does not light up when the key is turned on to start engine, & the engine will not start. I thought it might be an issue with the alternator ,so I took it to a rebuild shop ,but only thing they found wrong with it was a bad bearing.
They suggested checking to see if the bulb for the ignition lite was burnt out , because if it was it wouldn't complete the circuit. I pulled the lite out of the holder & didn't see anything wrong ,so I change it with the seat belt lite because it lit up when the mtl. socket it was in thouched the metal backing of the dash.But when I switched the bulb to ignition lite it didn't work either. The engine would crank over but not start.
I'm totally at a loss as to how automotive electric circuits works. Could it be a problem with bad connection in the fuse block?
Any help someone can give me to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Totally frustrated :(
