do you have a v6 3.0 or 4 cyl 2.0 liter ?

have you checked starter relay ? I SENT YOU A DIAGRAM for location

there is also the PCM relay , it is also in the diagram

tell me more about the relay your uncle fixed , that radiator fan relay goes back to PCM car computer if he shorted something out could have fried computer ?

are you able to hook up scanner to it and communicate with the computer have you tried that ?

and just to double check no red led security light flashing or steady on , on the dash while you trying to start?

Please let me know

Thank You
