Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!!
Will the start not engage or will the starter engage ok just not start the engine? Is the check engine light on or the security light?
Can you remove the starter relay and tell me if pins 86 and 30 have 12v, then see if pins 85 has a ground when the key is in the start position?
To test the starter you can jump pins 30/87
When you remove the starter relay you will see them written on the underside...
Let me know the results,
I attached the starter relay wiring.. Pin 86 is coming from fuse 12 in the interior fuse box.. Is it good?
How about fuse #12?
Can you check fuse 32 in the interior fuse box? It's a 10 amp fuse..
Does fuse 32 have 12v? Because it supply's voltage to pin 86 in the relay and we need 12v to activate the relay.. Can you check the ignition switch if it doesn't have 12v and tell me if there is 12v out on the ones that have (Start)?
If 32 does not have 12v then check pin 13 out of the ignition switch..
What is the last 8 of your VIN so I can get the correct wiring diagram?
Its the same wiring diagram.. The ignition switch is on the left of the steering column and the circuit we need to test is the F961 Pin 13 for 12v when the key is in the start position.. Also check the others for 12v by following the ()
Yes the steering column shroud will need to be removed then backprobe the wire when your starting it.. It's held in with 3 Torx screws in the bottom
Pull it straight to you to pull it off there is a screw above it too
Ok great now can you remove the starter relay and test pin 86 again because this fuse powers it up. If it does have 12v now then clip the test light to the positive battery and probe pin 85 when you have the key in start position. If it doesn't light then move the shifter to neutral and see if it lights.. if you can jump pins 30 and 87 and the starter engages then the issue is between 86 and 85
Ok if the starter engaged when you jumped 30/87 then the starter is fine and your issue is on the control side of the relay(Pins 86-85). Now since you don't have 12v at 86 then
Did you look at the ignition switch pinout and test each one? If you will look at the ( ) it will tell you when it should have 12v.. Let me know which ones doesn't have 12v when it should
Example: For pin 2 IGNITION SWITCH OUTPUT (OFF-RUN-START) It should have 12v in the Off-RUN-And Start position. Refer to the diagram I sent.
If pin 3 doesn't have 12v in the start position then I would replace the ignition switch,,
Hi, my name is ***** ***** the starter relay was jumpered with the key on, and the engine turned over but did nt run, then this is not in the startere system, it will be in the antitheft system, do you have a spare key to try in this?
