Where are the terminals you mentioned, on the connector? I have a diagram of the terminal end of the relay connector and it has 4 female receivers for the relay plugs labeled A,B,C and D.
So, as I understand what you are saying, I find the numbers on the relay and jump the corresponding terminals on the connector. Is that correct?
That is very helpful. One thing I am a little uncertain about is if I am checking the correct relay. The diagram I have shows three relays on the driver side fender wall with the fan relay being in the front, the middle being the auto shutdown, and the rear being the starter relay. However, when I unplugged the front relay, The starter would not work, making me think that that is the starter relay. The middle relay shut the engine down. When I unplugged the rear relay, which is supposed to be the starter relay, the engine started normally. I am wondering if the relays are in the reverse order from the diagram or the connectors were plugged in reverse order. Any way to be sure I am looking at the correct relay?
