Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 11 months ago.

We are going to be using this diagram.

There are 2 starter relays, both use 4 pins and may have 5 pins, the 5th pin is not used. The relays have a coil side and a switch side. Te coil needs power and ground to energize to make a magnet. This magnet pulls the switch over and completes the circuit allowing power on one side of the switch to flow out the other side of the switch. Can you remove starter relay 1 and see if you get those 3 inputs (2 powers and one ground) when trying to start? If s this relay should click when trying to start, then we need to check at relay 2. Can you do these tests so we can see which input is missing.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
