Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

For the engine to crank the red wire at the starter needs to have battery voltage 12.6 volts all the time and a signal wire that powers up when trying to start black/yellow. The signal comes from the starter relay under the hood in the fuse box. The relay needs ground all the time on pin 5. Power on pin 1 all the time. Power on pin 3 when trying to start from the ignition switch and TR switch. Can you test those? You can bypass a majority of the things to test it later by removing the relay, turning the key on, and jump a wire briefly from relay pin 1 to 2 to force it to crank if the relay is getting power, the wiring is fine, and the starter and engine are fine.
