Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a independent contractor for just answer, and ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.There will probably be some equipment needed for a proper diagnosis. If you are not comfortable with this or do not have any test equipment please let me know ASAP. I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. I am not compensated for my time until you leave a positive rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received.
Do you have a security light or a rapid flashing red light on dash?
The security light means there is an immobilizer fault. You will need a scanner that can get security data. Do you have access to a scan tool with security data?
Ok so when the key is on you dont have a security light? or you do?
Do you have a test light and a piece of wire?
Can you hear the relay clicking when you turn to crank position?
OK. I don't remember saying to replace the starter but OK. I guess we will see if that works. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Ok Did the replacement repair your concern?
Can you hear a relay clicking under the hood when you turn key to the start position?
I would start with seeing if there is another relay with the same part number and swap it and see if it helps. If the starter relay is clicking it is getting the request. SO it is likely the relay has failed.
Ok remove the relay and you will probably need a piece if wire to reach the terminals. DO not use the test light where the relay plugs in. Push the wire into the cavity and check for power at end of wire. You should have 1 power all of the time. This is the one I think you are missing. It is fuse 13 30 amp fuse if you do not have constant power. Due to the fact that the relay is clicking tells me the others are there.
OK. I am about done tonight. I will check first thing in morning.
Hello, I have not heard from you in a few days. Do you still need assistance? I also noticed you haven't left a rating. I have assisted in good faith and am only compensated when you leave a positive rating. Please let me know if there is anything else you need to leave a positive rating. Conversations can always continue after a rating is received.
OK. Just let me know if you need anything.
Just respond when you have a question please otherwise I get constant notifications.
Thanks for your understanding
