If you put the car in reverse with the key on, do the back up lights come on?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Expert:  Carguy1 replied 2 months ago.

Ok, please give me a moment to pull up the wiring diagram.

Did you adjust the switch when you installed it?
finally, any sounds at all when you try to start it? Click down by the starter or anything?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I put the switch to the same it was..not sure how to a just it...and there is power everywhere and it just clicks
Expert:  Carguy1 replied 2 months ago.

Ok, if the starter is making a single click, that usually indicates the starter has failed. If you have a helper you might be able to tap the starter while the helper holds the key to get it running.

If the click you hear is under the dash, then it's the relay clicking which is good and bad because it means the relay is working but the wiring to the starter may have a problem. If the signal wire to the starter is broken then the starter won't get any power. I suspect since the reverse lights are working the adjustment on the switch is good enough to make this connection.

If you have some help and a test light we can certainly check the wiring to the starter.
