Ignition would turn and lights come on but wouldn't turn over. Appears there is no connection to the starter. Wake up to call repair person and it cranked just fine. Battery seems to be fine and no signals of starter problems. Any ideas?

Obviously the mechanic is not getting down to the real issue for some reason Try a different shop I can only guess but it sounds like you may need a new ignition switch & then the proper adjustment if one is required You may be able to dajust yours to work ok if that applies. Seems odd the mechanic spends all that time in one area & doesn't have a solution You may have a bad door switch as well
I will strong recommend you, to inspect the wiring polarity.
2) The positive + with respective wire and ground or negative with respective ground.
3)Tight very well each connection. 4)Clean each connection from Oxide( very important) 5)Test the circuit breaker or fuse and reset or replace it. 6)If the problem persist. You must go to inspect the battery and Starter from your supplier company.
I'm not sure that your starter is in good condition .You have to pull your starter out from engine . Ensure the safety dental starter and the engine . If you find that the dental starter Moving north and right . You have to replace the starter . good luck , and let me know .............
Here is an idea. Check the connections between the battery and the car's ground and the starter. Then find the ground cable which connects the engine to the car and check the connections there as well. Often times odd ball electrical problems are caused by a faulty ground, especially when there is a starter issue. May help, costs nothing but a few moments of your time, and once in a dozen times it is the problem.
try to turn ignition on and jump the cyliniod if it starts than the cyliniod would be the problem if nothing happens i would say its the ignition be sure to ckeck your fuses and relays i hope this helps you please give me a good rating thank you
That would indicate either the ignitiion switch is sticking, or the solenoid is sticking, or your starter is just worn out.
You can test the ignition switch & the solenoid with just a 12 Volt test light at the starter with the help of an assistant.
Remove the solenoid "start" wire & use the test light to connect to it & watch while the ignition switch is operated from start to on for several test. Have the person turning the key to say when they are doing the on & start so that you will be able to determine if it is stickiing.
To test the solenoid, you'll need to have the wire connected again & put the test light probe on the lower Starter terminal, the one that connects directly to the starter, and have the car started. the light should only light as long as the ignition switch is in the "START" position & go off immediately upon releasing the ignition switch. If the light stays lit for even a moment after releasing the ign. switch, the solenoid or the solenoid & starter will need to be replaced.
The solenoid & starter aren't always replaced at the same time but you generally would due to the same amount of use and potential for future breakdowns due to only replacing the one part. You also get a better rebuilt product as a rule when you buy it with the lifetime warranty which has both parts included. The starter would be at fault if the other 2 test failed & that could be as a result of normal use, or just a lack of lubricant on the bendix shaft. You can have it tested as well as the solenoid tested, at your local auto parts store.
Are all your connections on battery clean and tight and also on starter and does all other lights work? If they do then it could be the ignition switch, if you got another person, take a test light and hold it on the small post on starter while the other person turns key to start position, if it don't light test light its the ignition switch, if it does it could be starter.
