maybe a celenoid or a relay I dunno much about zuks but my jeep did the same thing, it shouldnt be the safety switch unless the key wont turn

ok so i jumped the nutral safty swithch and it started working so i plug it back in and starts abot 5-6 times now i turn the key and i hear the solenoid click but thats it a gave her a few good knocks with a hammer and nothing im not sire what to think pulling the starter is my next step i guess

does the battery have a charge?

I would check battery charge. contenuity on your starter cables from ignition to suilinoid. and then you could try jumping the sulinoid. if starter kicks when you jump sulinoid you need a new one

the battery cant be below 10v or the starter will not engage

and check the upper ignition ground wire mine always corrods and comes off common problem

and if that doesnt work check relay and if your grounding the starter manually and it work 5 or 6 times then doesnt when u smack it with a hammer

then it sounds like the solinoid wire on inside is pooched witch in turn would make it a new starter

check battery for v when running for around 13 to 15v charge

then shut off and let it sit for 2 or 3 hours and check the batt to see it voltage if its abywhere in between 11.8 to 12.8 then the batt is good if not then the battery is pooched

and if all the alternater and battery checks out

then id do the starter

but check relays solinoid and any fuseable link if it has them before u change it !

good luck
