with the key held in the start position does the crank fuse have power?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I have not been able to hold the key in the crank position and test the crank circuit but I can check,but both the starter relay and the ignition switch circuit have power to them in the on position
Chevy Mechanic: Triston, MASTER ASE CERTIFIED replied 8 years ago
when dealing with the starting system circuits they will have to be tested with the key in the start position.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
let me understand that the start position is when the key is on and the instrument cluster displays the check engine and all other funcions of operation,if we agree here I have made the needed test in this position only
Chevy Mechanic: Triston, MASTER ASE CERTIFIED replied 8 years ago
no, start position is when you are trying to crank the engine over.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I could not get to check the circuits in this position since I need two persons to achieve this,but when i try to crank it the dash just lights up and the only thing that is strange is the oil guage flickers off the designated range,but no cranking from the starter
