The truck has a starting problem. I've replaced the battery and I'm on the 3rd solonoid. The only way I can get it to crank is to arc accross the solonoid. Any ideas? Please?

What litre size of engine? Automatic or manual tranny? Could be issue with neutral switch or clutch switch, depending on your tranny? The wiring below is for a 4.0L engine.

It's a manual trans, not sure on litre, I think it's a 4.0L. I've checked the wiring, it all looks good, but still won't start with the switch.

At the starter relay, the red wire with lite blue tracer should be hot with key in the crank position? Is it?If not, need to check voltage to and from clutch switch. Use a voltage tester/testlite.
