Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

When you checked the relay did you get power and ground on 85 and 86

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

can you throw power to 87 and get it to start? and is there power on 30?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did crank it from the relay point with my tester it did crank but didn't start up

so with a new relay in that spot you cant get power down to starter?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did try a next relay same thing no crank from the key inside

is your ground on 86 high resistance?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
How I check that

check it on ohms to ground when you are in the start position

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago

Customer reply replied 6 months ago

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Ohms setting my multi meter
Customer reply replied 6 months ago

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did it on all ranges

what about dc 20 and act like your checking power and see if you get signal, so main lead on positive and check to see if you get voltage reading

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I got 12v

well everything is checking out, you should be getting 12v at starter wire,

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No crank still the relay don't close
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
But I should get some kind of resistance on the Wire
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
To ground

should be very low resistance if anything, you may want to check the relay panel and check connections on the back side and check the signal from pcm to relay ground, could be a connector loose or corroded

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
once I am getting a positive signal from the key to the relay does that mean the key is still program
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
low resistance is closer to 0 right
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It is saying on the drawing it is the og wire coming from the pcm with the ground to the relay can u send me a drawing to make sure I got the right drawing
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Hi are still there
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Hello

yes if you had a key issues there would be a security light on, and yes on the resistance close to 0

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I went to the key Smith and he said the key is still transmitting so I guess the key is still good

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1s6drtb062wk2ts/printout.docx?dl=0

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Now I test the wire with the key on it is a ground but when I turn the key to start the og wire turns to a hot 12v wire

this is with the relay unplugged?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
When I try to start

no. turn the key off. check for 12vdc at 30

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Test lead on pos. For battery and 30 I got 12v

ok. since you have voltage on 30 and 85 when trying to start, we can assume the ignition switch is good, the transmission range sensor is good.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
10.4v on 85

that fine

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Ok

and it you jumper 30 to 87 the starter cranks, correct?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
it crank

ok, the pcm isn't controlling the ground side of the relay coil.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
the ground coming from the pcm on the og wire is not holding it
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
the pcm is bad

correct and yes. unless you want to do a continuity test of the orange wire from the relay to thee pcm to make sure the wire isn't open somewhere

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did that the wire is good

then its the pcm

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I probe the og wire and when I turn on the key the wire becomes hot

thats fine, but its supposed to be a switching ground

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Meaning coming from the ignition hot it going throw the coil for the relay
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Mean only when to crank the car it turns to a ground then goes natural
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
is there any way to get this to work and would a key stop that ground from coming out from the pcm

no theres no way and no a key wouldnt stop it from working like that. you need a pcm and have it programmed.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
U think the pcm need to be grounded q
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
