Super, lets start with the getting the car to start first.

Starting circuit beginning to end, this is what you should see:

  1. Fuse 4 under the hood, good fuse and battery power there
  2. Black/Orange wire to the ignition switch, powered.
  3. Fuse 23 under the dash good and powered with the key in the start position.
  4. White/Orange wire to the transmission range sensor powered with the key in the start position.
  5. Starter relay under the hood, ground on pin 85, power when starting on pin 86 from the tan/red wire from the range sensor, pin 30 powered all the time
  6. Red wire at the starter, powered all the time, White/Pink wire powered with everything thing installed and working from all prior checks.
