My '92 plymouth acclaim won't start. I've tried jumping the battery and whacking the starter but nothing happens. Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks for choosing JustAnswer.
My name is Vladimir.
I have some questions, please reply in this thread:
1) What engine is in you car?
2) Have you already tested something ( besides jumping and whacking)?
3) Do you have a test light?

Hey I have a three cylinder v6 and those are the only things I have tried. I don't believe I have a test light.
Expert:  Vladgmru replied 8 years ago.
You will need a test light in order to check some wiring.
First of all, check for power at the starter solenoid( Brown wire) with the ignition key in the start position. If you get +12 power at this wire but the starter doesn't click, your starter is faulty and has to be replaced.
If you do not get power at this wire with the key in the start position, find the starter relay(LH side of engine compartment, in front of strut tower) and check for power at the Yellow wire from the ignition switch( with key in start) and the Red wire( hot at all times).
If you have power at this relay but it does not click, more than likely there is a problem with the park/neutral switch or related wiring.
