Hello, do you have a test light to see if the starter is getting power?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
yes, but I shorted it with screw driver and it engaged several times with key on but would not start and will not start with key ignition. This is the first time I have had starting issue.
Expert:  James replied 6 months ago.
I would not have recomended that at all. Does your scan tool perform a self test on the body control module.
