Default 1988 subaru gl 10 Key in ignition and engine doesnt turn over.

When I put my key into the ignition the dash lights turn on and my electrical works. When I turn it more to start the engine nothing happens. It does not attempt to start over nothing at all. The battery is brand new. I have no idea whats going on!!

You have to do some basic testing with a voltmeter or test light to see if the starter is getting power. I'm not sure if your '88 has a clutch interlock switch (assuming manual trans) but if it does make sure it's working. If it's an auto there may be a park/neutral switch.

Along with Mulder's good advice check the fusible links located in the plastic housing mounted on the coolant reservoir. Check for loose connections.
