Fixed a friends car. It needed all new gaskets and an inlet heater hose. Repaired everyhting but car wouldnt start. Relized I was 180 out on the distributor so I fixed that. Cranked car and it started but was a little rough. Turned it off figuring I was a tooth off on the distributor. Went to start the car again and everything inside comes on, relays click, but nothing in the engine. No spark coming from coil and nothing from the starter either. Battery is charged so I figured it must be ignition switch symptoms seemed dead on. I also turned the lights on and attempted to start the car no voltage draw whatso ever. Lights stayed bright. No dim at all. So I bought a switch and put it in but no change. So I started trouble shooting figuring it could neutral safety swith or crank sensor. Then I noticed a harness had been battery acid at eaten at the base (see manuel picture of chasis highlighted area is the harness. Wires look intact but harness will need to be replaced but I do not think if it is this harness it would of effected the starter. So I am not fully convienced that this is the reason the car will not turn over. So I need guidence in this.
have the same problem?
