Thor Hurricane won't start

On wed, I took my 2012 hurricane with under 11000 miles on it to get gas, worked perfect as always, today everything works except for starting, full battery, lights come on dash lights work, just no turn over,
Any suggestions ?

There's a switch on the transmission that prohibits the engine from starting unless it's in Park or Neutral. If the switch goes bad, or is on it's way to going bad, it can act like the symptoms you are describing.

With the tranny in park, jiggle the shift lever a bit while trying to start it. Do the same from the neutral position too. I've seen that happen, usually on older vehicles but at least give it a try.

Same with a bad ignition switch. Jiggle the key while turning it to start.

If the neutral safety switch is good. You can check the starter solenoid. Ford uses one that is separate from the starter itself. Follow the large positive wire from the battery and it will go to it. There is a small wire plugged in on the front. If you have a test light that small wire should get power when the key is turned to the start position. That is what triggers the solenoid to feed power out the other large cable to turn the starter motor. If it gets power but the starter doesn't turn, the solenoid is bad.

There have been issues reported with a poor connection for the wiring harness plug on the steering column.
