Check the battery cable connections for corrosion at the battery and starter first. Check the ground connections from the battery to the frame and body.
Could be an ignition switch, lock cylinder, or both problem. Is the lock cylinder loose and sloppy?
Could be the starter relay.
Starter Relay-is on the rear center of the engine compartment, at the right rear of the heater unit.
Could be the starter solenoid.
Could be the starter.
This is the test procedure you need to follow.
With the key held in the start position test for 12 volts at the black and white wire going to the starter relay. No voltage = bad ignition switch. Voltage = next test.
With the key held in the start position, Check for voltage at the black wire coming off the clutch interlock switch. No voltage = bad swtch. Voltage = next test.
With the key held in the start position, Check for voltage at either the black and red wire coming off the relay to the starter or the black and white wire at the solenoid. No voltage = bad relay. Voltage = have starter and solenoid tested. Depending where you are located some parts houses offer starter/solenoid testing service free of charge.
The wire colors are from my book. No gaurantee they will match yours tho.
Good luck and let us know what you find. :)
have the same problem?
