would like to help you with this
Do you have 12 volts at the starter? If you do then turn the key to the start position still have voltage?
yes 12 at the starter ... did not check with key in start position ... as you know we are having a hurricane now in Mass. ... I'd would otherwise go out and check it but it will need to wait ... the battery is new (a honda battery) and I put the charger on it and after a full charge it still would not turn-on the instrument lights nor turn on the starter ... I'll take all the help I can get on this ... Thanks Greg
do you have 12 at the key switch? You should have 12 at the batt terminal and as you turn the key your x citer wire should get 12 as well
I have not tried anything yet since the storm ... I need to take the body panels off to get at the switch terminals, etc ... I'll check on these conditions hopefully tonight after work
I checked the voltage at the starter when the ignition key was turned one click ... it went from 12 to zero volts ... is this a battery problem?
I was looking at the relays and pulling and pushing them to see if they were loose ... after, I tried the key and the instrument lights went on and it would turn the starter ... could there be a intermittent short behind the relay-fuse block ... haven't had time to work on it much more this week due to my day job ... is there a trend on these models wrt wireing problems? ... I can see that there are a lot of wires behind the relay-fuse block ... looks like a rat's nest at best ...
Yep you sure are on the right track. i would go back to those relays and with the key on wiggle the relays and wires until the dash goes out again. Then you know were its at.
