Car won't start when key is turned. It will start when alternate power is supplied to the solinoid? Also all the door locks and key fob won't work. I replaced about 4 fuses and they are all fine. Could this be a security issue?

Do you
have the same problem?

Diagram shows the starting circuit and you would need a test light or DVOM to perform testing. At the ignition switch ensure yo have battery voltage at the Blue/Red wire when ignition is turned to crank. If battery voltage is not available, you have a faulty ignition switch.

If battery voltage is available, check the clutch switch. Ensure you have battery voltage at the Green/Yellow wire under above conditions. Use a jumper wire to by pass the switch to test if it works.

Check the relay if you don't have battery voltage at Green/Yellow wire or when you bypass and it still does not work.

The power door lock is fuse # 11.
