In one of my previous post I told you to use a remote wire to apply battery voltage to the starter solenoid. That is the proper way. Using a screwdiver and at the wrong terminals, that can mean disaster if anything goes wrong. Under such testing, the starter would run but it is not going to engage as the pinion gear is not being pushed out by the solenoid.
At starter disconnect ONLY the solenoid wire.
Get a piece of wire, add a fuse to it and attach one end to the starter solenoid terminal. Touch the other end to the battery positive terminal and see if it cranks. Remember to have the vehicle in NEUTRAL.
Just for confirmation in case the starter is good. We would be doing other testings from here so I need to be very sure I understand you correctly the present conditions and symptoms.
1. No clicking noise when ignition key is turned to crank engine. True/False.
2. Security light stays on during cranking.
3. Dash indicator lights stays on when turned to On or while cranking.
4. Clicking noise of relay underdash, during ignition on or while cranking?
5. Was anything done prior to this occurring?
We are working on whatever information you have provided and if you do not provide the correct information or do not perform work as we suggested, we would be wasting our time as the desired result is not achieved.
