Do you know if there is power to the starter's "S" terminal, (small terminal) when the key is turned to start?

If not then check that before replying, thanks

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating. Thanks.

That is the smaller terminal at the back of the starter. Please see attached diagram, thanks
