I just bought an 09 Malibu. I’ve used a test light to test the starter by touching the casing and with the positive leader from the test light connected to the battery positive, it read it had power. When I hooked up the negative leader to the negative on the battery, I got nothing. I went ahead and tested the 30 amp fuse in the engine bay for power. One side of the prongs lit up, other side didn’t. (Not sure if that’s means anything) I then pulled the starter wire (purple) out of the starter and attempted to start the car and got no power to the test light. (Not the best connection but was in) I’m thinking it is the ignition switch but I’m looking for second opinions. Thanks in advance.
