Is the security light on solid or flashing?If not we need to start tracing the power flow of the starter circuit.

If the security light isnt on then you should have power to the yellow wire coming out of the ignition switch with the key in the start position. Also constant power to the red wire at the ignition switch.

Ok, let me see if I can get this straight. There's two red lights in the dash one is in center where tech is and there's another one with picture of little car. BEFORE I replaced starter one in the tach was solid. It now comes on for a second then goes out. The one with little car blinks for about 10 seconds goes out. I hope this makes sense.

As long as the lights go out and stay out were good. Go ahaed and check those wires.

The red wire to the ignition goes back to the number 1 thirty amp fuse in the under hood fuse box like it shows in the wire diagram I posted. So see if there is power to both sides of that fuse.

If you have the red wire hot and the yellow one coming right out of the ignition switch isnt hot with the key in the start position then bad ignition switch.
