Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I am reviewing your question and will reply shortly, thanks.
Have you tested the starter relay or the safety neutral switch, (trans position sensor)?
So, something is not working right. There is no way to know what it may be without testing the stating system while on the vehicle when the vehicle is not starting.
I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.
Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. The clicking noise you hear , do you hear it at the relay in the fuse block or at the starter?
Ok asuming the starter switch is communicating to the relay when you turn it to start because you have a click. so this is what we can do to see if the starter is receiving any signal. do you feel comfortable jumping the relay?
ok there are four terminals ONE WILL BE HOT ALL THE TIME AND ONE ONLY POWERS UP WHEN TURNING THE SWITCH TO START . ONE WILL BE A GROUND AND ONE GOES TO THE STARTER. YOU WANT TO JUMP THE ONE THAT'S HOT ALL THE TIME TO THE STARTER ONE NOT THE GROUND. IF IT STARTS REPLACE THE RELAY.
not being there it's usually the one directly across from the one that's hot all the time.
Yes and it did turn the starter?
EXCELLENT! so probably the relay was sticking and it needs to be replaced if that's all we did . hope you happy with my help.
lol just show me where to go fishing . cheers.
yes up do you need any more help?
trying to get this? did you put a new relay in or just the same one in?
ok , there are two wires at the starter on heavy one that should have power all the time and a smaller one that powers up when turning the ignition switch to start , check that.
I'll be her latter too.
you mean the one that should when the switch is turned to start?
perhaps we're chasing things around so I found a link with diagrams for you to follow to check the circuit . I'll see if I can find a wiring diagram as well. http://www.clubxb.com/forums/front-page-articles/43038-quick-starter-circuit-check.html
here is the starter circuit for your vehicle so you can trace the power flow.
yes it's right at the end of the shift cable going into the transmission It's the little black thing with the wires on it.You can get at it from under neath left front or remove a few things from up above to access it from there
