Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Which fuse are you referring to as the starter relay fuse?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

If the starter relay does click when you turn the key to start, try a new starter relay and try again.

27 in the under the hood fuse box
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No click. Tried new relay.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Is this a clutch?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Automatic
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Ok, wo or what told you fuse #27 was for the starter relay?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

I don't even see a fuse #27 in that underhood fuse block, the highest is #25.

Ok, back up the camera a bit or tell me what page number that is?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

That is a relay.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

You said a fuse #27.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Sorry
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Ok, so now, why was you saying that fuse was good then, was you looking to see if it was blown, testing it for voltage, what?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Did you actually replace that relay cause that is the starter relay?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I replaced it
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Ok, so we are on the same page here, did you think there was another fuse or what, I have to understand what your thinking was, why did you think that that was a fuse #27 and also think it was a starter relay?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Looking at the starter wiring diagram, if the starter relay doesn't even click, remove the starter relay and test the 4 terminals in that socket for voltage. 1 terminal should have voltage even with the key off, than 1 additional when the key is turned to start. Then let me know the results.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Just eliminating possible sources of problem. Also the anti theft system is working.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok will do
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Ok

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Only 1 terminal is hot with key turned on
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Ok, back up and check for voltage in and out of the ignition switch, in the red wire and out the yellow wire, wit the key on start.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Both hot
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

Ok, then you have an open or shorted wire from the ignition switch to the starter relay along that yellow wire. Follow and find and repair the wire, or cut both ends and run a new wire, same gauge and preferably the same color, then try that.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
How do I trace it under dash
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 month ago.

That is why I said just cut both ends and run a new wire.
