Okay thank you .

Don't have any idea with this model, i thought we was working on another type of vehicle, looks like your question was put into the wrong category,

I will reopen this question so the correct expert can help you with this issue sorry for the mix up ..

Try a new wire direct from the keyswitch to the starter switch terminal on the starter solenoid. You may not be getting enough amps though the old wire to energize the starter. I like to use one size bigger wire , which will carry more current. If solenoid clicks when key is turned to start, that is all it can be!
