1983 jeep cj7

Ok guys I took my Jeep out for a drive and it ran great when I turned off off and went in the store and come back out it wouldn’t do anything when I turn the key on the dash lights come on and radio but will not turn over I replaced the starter solenoid and still nothing has good power going into the solenoid and also to alternator. I’m lost and I figure it’s something simple all fuses are good also help lol

i am sure others will chime in, but do you have power when you turn the key to start ? if not it could be the "real" switch sitting on the steering column , it is engaged by a metal rod from the key cylinder . if it is moved a little from right position it will NOT send power to the RUN wire going to the relay.

Does the key turn all the way to the start position and return?
