pt cruiser: wont start..Starter solenoid clicks..relay..New starter

02 pt cruiser won't start...
02 pt cruiser won't start. Starter solenoid clicks n so does relay. New starter btw. At first I thought starter was the problem, so I got a new one. But apparently that's not the problem. I'm thinking it's the ignition circuit but need more help.

Hello!

How much voltage does the starter and starter solenoid get with the key in the crank position?
Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
Gets battery Voltage...actually just got it to start, but it's likely to happen again...what should I look for?
If it gets battery voltage to BOTH the starter and solenoid when it does not crank over and it has a new starter, then chances are it just has a bad engine ground. The engine block is the ground for the starter motor so check and clean all engine grounds

Hello!

I see you have left me a negative rating. What can I clear up for you so we can get this fixed?
Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
Well ok, it was a bit helpful. But would the ground be the only problem?
Based on what your telling me YES! but if you don't have power down at the starter then NO. Chances are you did not check this and have provided me with incorrect information and now have hurt my rating.

PLEASE LISTEN

If you DO NOT have power down at the starter solenoid WHEN the starter is not working, then it could be anything in the starting circuit. Starter relay, wiring, ignition switch or even a bad transmission range switch.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
