Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Do you have the tools and ability to do some testing to figure out what is wrong?

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Super, lets get the engine to crank first then we can check to see if there is spark, and fuel. Remove the start relay under the hood in the fuse box. What you should see is power all the time on pin 30, ground all the time on pin 85, power on pin 86 from the ECM when trying to start. The ECM gets info from the transmission range sensor if in park or neutral, the BCM for the anti theft system and the ignition switch. Can you test up to this point?

Please make sure to select a rating from the top of your screen prior to logging off so the post does not time out.

Thanks Moose.

Great now a scan tool is needed to see if the ECM is seeing park and or neutral and see if the BCM is getting a start signal.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
