Do you still have power to lights, radio ect.?
Is this the 4.0 or the 4.6 model? I want to make sure I'm looking at the correct wiring diagram.
Do your head lights work?
Once you have a chance check the #12 fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. It should be a 50 amp fuse usually red in color. With a test light, if you have one, turn the key in the on position and see if the test light comes on when you touch the top of that fuse. It should light up at both ends of the fuse. this fuse supplies power to the starter relay and the ignition relay.
With the clear cover off and fuse installed do both sides light up?
Ok. the next fuse you need to check is #29 in the fuse box behind left side of dash. Should be a ten amp fuse.
This fuse will only have power to it when you have the key in the cranking position. So when you test it try cranking to see if power is sent to this fuse.
Ok. The next thing you need to check is to see if power is getting to the starter when cranking. The wire you need to test will be the smaller of the two that go to the starter. Put your test light on that wire and have someone crank it to see if the test light lights up.
I will check back with you In a couple hours.
Hello, Eddie here and I will do my best to help. Have you swapped the starter relay by chance in the fuse box out under the hood? See if you can swap it with the blower motor relay and see if it cranks then. Let me know what happens. Thanks.
C1017 is the starter relay. and the blower relay is right beside it. be sure not to pull the PCM relay, it has to stay in to start.
Are the pins the same? do they look like they will interchange? I'm not positive on that model. If the pins look the same and you have the same number pins I would try it. It won't crank now at all correct?
If the relay is numbered, jump pins 30 to 87, with the relay out of the socket with a small jumper wire, and see if it cranks then.
