I just changed my head gasket I have put everything back together and tried to start the car, the car tried to crank for only a second then nothing. Not even clicking my battery is fine. I wondered if the engine was locked up but I was able to turn the harmonic balancer and see the timing sprocket rotate as well through the grommet in the timing belt cover. Next theory was the starter. I checked it with the volt meter to see if it was getting power, and with the car turned off I picked up some voltage. So nothing else is the problem I began to look around the engine compartment and found a broken female electrical connector (ohh crap) just the plactic of the connector no wires in it. I found the male end that it connects to and its in the wiring harness near where the wires for the fuel injectors split from the harness. I couldn't find any loose wires. Cam shaft sensor wires are good all others are as well. My new theory is that that connector goes to a switch and the connector broke when I tried to start the car so the switch is stuck open whitch would explain the starter getting a charge when the key isnt in the ignition. Is there any way you can help?
if you guys are able to help me quickly I will deffinetly donate in a few weeks when I get paid but I cant right now because of having to buy parts.
