Ok... go to the starter cut relay and see if there is two powers going into this relay with the key in the crank position. At least two of the four wires should have battery voltage with the key in the crank position. Here is a wiring diagram.
I am available when ever you are ready to start checking things again.
THe next test we should perform is to Plug the relay back in and check for power on the blue with white wire with the key in the "CRANK" position.
Let me know!
THis means the relay is working!
The blue with white stripe wire goes to the clutch pedal switch. Next step is to go to this switch and see if it is getting power with the key in the crank position.
In theory, if this wire coming off of the relay is getting power with the key in the crank position, short of being a bad starter, its got to be a bad clutch pedal position switch.
But lets just check it before replacing it.
Ok.. is the starter cut relay being energized when you try and crank it over?
Sorry for the delay!
WHat do you mean turns on? DOes it have power to it or ground?
Sorry for the delayed responses.... I am at work.
Are you using a normal test light?
Is the alligator side of the test light (clip) attached to battery negative?
So when you touch the blue with white wire on the starter cut relay and the black with blue with the tip of the test light it will light up with the key in the crank position...correct?
Ok.. well, it sounds like the whole circuit is working to me. The power is coming into the starter cut relay down going through it and coming out on the blue with white wire. This wire goes down to the starter solenoid to energize it. THe only thing in between is the clutch switch. (look at the wiring diagram I sent).
Really, all you need to do it get power from that blue with white wire coming out of the relay to the starter and if the starter is good, it will start to crank.
I would have another look at the clutch switch and follow the wires to see where they come and go.
I am going to be off line for about an hour. I will check back in with you then.
I made a pit stop and am able to get access to the internet. THat sounds very interesting about the diagnostics. I can send you some of this information too about the diagnostics if you need. But checking the wiring is the best way to diagnose it in my opinion. But either way should work.
I will be standing by... let me know what you find!
I am glad to hear its fixed!
Thank you for letting me know the results.
Gob bless and have a great day!
