Hello, my name is***** is the problem you are having with vehicle? Thanks.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Hi, the vehicle will not start. I checked the battery and all the fuses and they seem to be fine.
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Does engine turn over or nothing at all when trying to start? Thanks.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
nothing happens. When I turn to start, only the relay sounds
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Do you hear a single click or multiple clicks? Thanks.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
just one click
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

One click usually means starter has failed. With a multimeter you can monitor voltage on both wires going to starter, they should maintain at least 11v while trying to start. If voltage is good then replace starter. Here are replacement instructions, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.

I had changed the 10A CRNK fuse because it was damaged. Could that have anything to do with the problem?
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

It could. Check to see if fuse is blown, if not check to see if fuse has voltage with key in start position. Let me know, thanks.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
it has voltage. Are there any other fuses I should check besides that one?
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

If fuse has voltage then that even points more toward starter so next step is checking voltage at starter wires. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Sorry, I rechecked the fuses and one of them doesn't have voltage. The fuse is new.
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Does the crank fuse have voltage with key in start position?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The issue was resolved. Thank you very much for your help.
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Good to hear it is up and running, thanks for update. Let me know if there is anything else I can do, have a great day!
