STARTER DOES NOT CRANK & RELAY CHATTERS OR DOES NOT CLICK
1. Ensure battery is fully charged and cables are clean and properly connected. Remove push-on
connector from relay (Red with Blue stripe wire).
2. Ensure connection is clean and secure, and relay bracket is grounded. If connections are okay,
check operation of relay with jumper wire.
3. Ensure ignition switch is off. Using a jumper wire, connect one end of jumper wire to now
exposed terminal on starter relay and other end to battery positive post.
4. If this corrects problem, check ignition switch, neutral switch and wiring in starting circuit for
open or loose connections. If jumper wire across relay does not correct problem, replace relay.
Before performing the following tests, place A/T in "N" or "P" and M/T
in Neutral. Disconnect vacuum line to thermactor by-pass valve. After
tests, run engine 3 minutes before connecting vacuum line.
