Hi Im Dave......... lets start with the basics. check the connections at the battery, alternator and starter. make sure everything is corrosion free and tight. this is a very common problem with these. also do you have a multimeter?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

The prior tech opted out. Do you still need help with this starter relay or starter motor concern?
