Rattle noise, then no crank condition 240 1986 200

This morning, my 1986 240 started with no problem.

I drove thirty miles, and noticed a rattle sound from under the hood. I was unable to locate the source. It sounds louder than a loose exhaust bracket. Itdoes not sound like the groan of a power steering pump.

I shut down the car, for about thirty minutes.


Key in "I" position, only accessories on, both contact in fuel relay open.

Key in "II" position, alternator, oil, parking brake, brake failure, and light failure lights are lit. One contact in the fuel relay closes.

Key in "Start" III position, only oil and parking brake light on. Engine does not crank. Fuel relay still has only one contact closed .

Could the loud rattle, and the no crank condition be related?
