have you tried jump starting it?
it seems as though you have an immobilizer system issue as that will make the green key light flash when you turn the ignition switch to the on position, however, the immobilizer system should not keep it from cranking over
are you equipped to do some testing on the starting system?
it is possible you got a faulty starter for it. if it isn't a weak battery I would test for voltage to the starter solenoid while holding the key in the start position but that would require at least a test light for checking it. Or, if you had a jumper wire you could jump battery voltage straight to the starter solenoid wire and see if it turns over, if not, then possible bad starter or battery cable connections
I have to take off for awhile but I will check back in later,
ok I will check back for your reponse
thanks and good luck
automatic transmission or manual?
there is a starter cut relay plugged on to the dash fuse box
where do you hear the click?
here is the relay location
is that where you hear the click or is the click from the starter?
if the click was from the starter I would say that you must have had power to the starter solenoid when in the crank position
here is the diagram
it is starting to sound like you have a bad starter or bad connection at the battery cables
can you test for power at the starter 1 wire solenoid connector in this picture
did you test that when you held the key in the crank position?
also did you try jumping power to that terminal on the starter to see if it would crank over? if yo have a jumper wire you could jump from the big battery cable wire on the starter to that small terminal
oh really? no voltage from the main battery cable connection at the starter? that would be unusual and would lead back to the terminals at the battery
or a bad battery cable
that should come straight off the battery to the big post on the starter. you could take a jumper cable from the battery post to that post on the starter and then see if it cranks
sounds like that is possible but just an unusual case
let me know how it turns out, I am curious now
if there was a problem in the steering column that would probably be the ignition switch and in that case you wouldn't have good voltage to the starter solenoid and the starter would not make a clicking noise at all. easiest way I know to determine if the starter is good is to jump power to the solenoid and see if t cranks over.
awesome, glad you got it fixed, thanks again
