The battery cable has 12v but the small wire has 0 w/key in the on position
Chrysler Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

ok, now remove the starter relay, and check the socket, pin should have pwoer at all times and one should have power when cranking, do they?

Looking down at the fuse block the starter relay the Front pinion is hot at all times and the pin to the right is hot during cranking
Chrysler Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

ok, on the bottom of the relay, there are numbers stamped into the plastic, by each pin, they are numbered 30, 85, 86 nd 87, doyou see these numbers?

I also noticed brake lights are staying on and I removed the brake switch
Chrysler Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

ok, in the socket the relay plugs into, can you jumper the 30 and 87, and see if the starter turns over?

Chrysler Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

ok, then you have a bad starter, go back to the starter, and check the small wire for power, when cranking, make sure the relay is reinstalled,Tim

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

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.
