Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.


Have you double checked all the wiring connectors on the passenger side of the engine and also the wires to the starter solenoid and the bulk wire connectors on the firewall on the passenger side near the valve cover?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, we have done that.


Do you have a test light or digital multimeter to do a couple of checks?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, but it isn't working. My husband says he will get one.


No problem. Just reply back when he does and I'll get an email. I'll get back to you as soon as I can. It depends on how busy the dealerships shop is tomorrow.
