My first ? Is... What color is the signal wire to the starter?

I get no codes and no warnings. All fuses are good As well. There is a possibility the alternator signal wire and the starter wire got switched. Starter is yellow right?

starter signal wire is yellow.

check power at the yellow wire with a volt meter while cranking

So where I stand now... The main power cable has power but the signal wire doesn't get anything when I turn the key. Would the car be immobilized?

check any message display on the SID, check twice unit, check that little immobilizer antenna around the ignition lock. check neutral safety switch

Good to go!!! It was the shift linkage. I gat bent down a little bit ant the it was stuck just between park and reverse. I bent it back up, cycled threw the gears and fired right up!! Thank you guys. It's nice to be able to bounce ideas around.
