With your finger on the starter relay under the hood. When a helper holds the key in the start position and you remove and install this relay, does it click in your finger tips?

Starter relay referring to Run/crank in panel?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 8 months ago.

Sorry but I feel like this particular diag is going to take way to much time. I can offer wire diagrams for you to work from for each issue but if that would not help. I can opt out now so another can assist.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
You nean the actual communication?.Would it help if I was more attentive?
I am on a mobile browser. I can switch to a laptop to be faster.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 8 months ago.

The speed has nothing to do with it. This is just going to take a long time and alot of work for someone to diagnose this not being in person, and I do not feel I am the right one to do that on this multiple issue car.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Perhaps. Vehicle was fine up until last Saturday, after gassing up and accelerating onto on-ramp of northbound freeway 7-10, power loss occurred. Vehicle was able to pull over but power was off to all the aforementioned sections.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Headlights have power, cockpit ear latches and ac/blower have power, as well as cluster in "on", and alarm system.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 8 months ago.

Opting out now so another can see if they would like to help. Best of luck.
