Hey there, thanks for the question.

Do you have power on the black/red wire at the solenoid with key in start position?

I don't need a phone call, my apologies. I am jumping back and forth between customers and this site sends those requests automatically! ignore them.

I understand everything works but the starter, but before we just condemn the starter we need to make certain there is power to the solenoid form the ignition switch otherwise it won't crank.

i guess you stepped away, if you would prefer a refund instead of chatting let me know and I can send it to customer service. If not i am happy to work with you until we resolve it.
