Hey Ryan, go to autozone and tell them you need Part Number: LS514 Its a new Ignition Switch pretty sure that problem.

If you have a manual transmission, then the clutch switch (known as the clutch triple function switch) might be bad. It's in series with the ignition switch.

Did you say, from the solenoid to the fender? That would be a bad ground to the solenoid. Replace your solenoid, or make sure the mounting bolts are tight. The solenoid should pull its ground through the mounting ears.
