Customer Question

I have a 77 AMC Pacer (feel free to laugh). I have to jump the starter solenoid to fire up the car. New solenoid, new ignition switch, new neutral safety switch. I can't figure it out. Going crazy

I do not have a wire diagram for this car, so I will have to help you do the testing to see what is wrong by memory and your help. Do you have a digital volt meter and a test light to do some testing?

If you have all new parts then there has to be a wire that is not allowing power to get to the starter. I can help you find this problem if you will let me.
