Jeep won't start

When I turn my jeep on, all of the electronics come on. But when I turn the key to start the car nothing happens. Can somebody help me out? I think it might be the starter

Automatic trans? Might be the Neutral Safety Switch. Try wiggling the shifter when this happens.

Got gauges? Read the voltmter when the switch is in the On position. What's the meter do when you go to Start? Does it drop? If so, you've got starter/battery connection issues. If not, most likely NSS problems.
