Do you still need assistance with this issue .
Hi yes i'm here just got your message .
we can chat if you are there.
okay good what is the problem the starter motor will not crank and no power on the "S" wire to the starter when trying to start .
Is there any warning lights on in the dash like the immo /security light
Have your Husband check the grounds to the engine block and chassis from the battery .
Hook up his scan tool and check for malfunction codes first .see what code you have .
dash lights should come on with the side marker lights .
what type of scan tool or code reader is he using
but this would not cause a no start .
When he turns the key to start does he get battery power to the solenoid .
two connection on the solenoid one is a fat cable the other a thin wire .wire should have power only when the ignition key is turned to start position
okay this could be due to the security immo system .try another spare key.
Did he just change the engine or with transmission .
okay if the relay is clicking then the starting circuit to the relay is working .
check the wiring from the relay to the starter motor .
You got Manuel or automatic transmission .
Okay then check the wiring on the clutch pedal .
if this is not connecting the starter will not work first try pressing fullu down does not work disconnect and jump the pins then try and start .
