I don't have a test light.
I put it in neutral, tried to start, nothing. No starter sound
Put it back in park and tried again, still nothing
All dash lights still come on
I checked the fuses. The one labeled "starter" is a 40a fuse in slot number 15, not a 15a fuse. It looks OK. I took a quick look at the other fuses and didn't see one blown. I have a multimeter, is there anything we can do with that?
I assume you mean to check voltage at the fuse while trying to start the car?Where is the "crank relay"? Check that while trying to start?
If I need to turn the key all the way to the "crank" position, we'll have to wait a while. I'm home alone right now.
12v on the ignition relay with the key off
No voltage at the fuse with the key in any position
Fuse #39, labeled "fuel pump", has no voltage with the key off or on.
Did you get my message that I do have a voltage test light pen?
the red wire from the battery to the fuse box appears to be intact, no corroded connections and no fusible link that I could see.
yes one large wire
