Dash seems to have power? Everything else works, just not starter? Do you have voltmeter or test light to check unit? Is neutral start switch good? Ptp off? Any other safetys?

When jumping starter, you are using switch wire to battery wire, same as key would do?

Does the new starter relay click when key is turned to start?
