I stopped being stubborn and took a reading off the yellow wire- confirmed that it was #50
Got a reading of 3.5 volts when the ignition was turned to start- while grounding to the steering column. I confirmed the battery- which is new- had 12 volts.
Please tell me to get a new ignition switch.
Also, FYI, instead of trying to put a needle in the yellow wire, I found it was much simpler to twist speaker wire to the post and sandwich it between the connector block. I did put a small strip of electrical tape in each side to insulate it from the other posts.
Will double check the test by trying other ground points. Will also inspect the battery to chassis ground.
