2009 Lancer 2.0 no crank / no start

First of all let me say hey, new member here from Alberta Canada.

I am looking to purchase an 09 Lancer for my son and the one I found is a very reasonable price because of a no start issue. Until I see it I have limited information. The PO told me that one day it just stopped cranking over, fair enough, I can diagnose that. He said that they jumped the starter and that it was operating but the car still had no spark (not sure if they had the key on or not but I would assume yes). If the key is on and there is still a no start / no spark situation I would assume an ignition switch issue of which I have read there is a design problem with them. Without having the ignition switch in my hand I am wondering how to bypass the switch or jumping the switch to ensure that there isn't just starter power but power to the ECM to actually start the car. I don't want to go and throw an ignition switch in to this car without knowing first that it is the problem and I'd like to do some diagnosing before I drop the cash on the car as I don't have mass amounts of time to spend on it right now.

I do have the factory key to do this test.

I have read the thread by Ted B and it gave me lots of info, just trying to make this as easy as possible and with limited tools as I am in the middle of moving and I just stored everything about a 10 hours drive away.

Thanks a bunch

An 09 will have an immobilizer system, I'd be surprised if you could by pass it. And considering that I have seen 08/09 lancers in the Edmonton area as low as 5k I hope your getting a good deal for the headake this could be.
