Under the hood
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Just want to make sure

yes.the relays prongs should be numbered 1,2,3,5. you had 11.83 volts in the slot where prong three goes, correct?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Correct

now make a jumper wire. put one end in slot 3 and the other in slot 5

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Run a wire from 3 to 5 and try to start it

run a wire from 3 to 5 and it should crank on its own

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Turn the switch on
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I tried with the switch off no sound

if you ran a wire from 3 to 5 and the starter didn't crank, then either the wire to the starter solenoid isn't connected or the wire from the relay to the solenoid is broken or the starter is bad.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I put a starter on it today but it was used

check to see if the solenoid wire at the starter has 12 volts to it with the relay jumpered.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
11.86 on the big wire

little wire

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Solenoid

the smaller wire is the solenoid. the large cable is from the battery

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Little one 0

do you have the relay jumpered still?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
had it on 3and5

then you have an open wire between the relay and the starter solenoid.

My relay prongs is 30,85,86,87,87a

ok, not a problem 87a is never used

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

did you find any problems?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The motor turns over outside but not by the key inside

so it cranks with the relay jumpered from 30 to 87?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It just turns over

turns over means to start.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

cranking means its cranking but not starting

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

so with 30 to 87 jumpered, it cranks. then with the relay put back in it does nothing. have you tried to start it in neutral?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

ok, remove the relay again

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I put another engine in the car now it want start . Think the car security code

is the security indicator going out when trying to start it?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Remove the relay and do what

if the security light is going out then its not anti theft....while someone holds the key in start, check for voltage in slot 86
