Engine Does Not Crank, Starter Solenoid Does Not Click 1. Disconnect battery lead from distributor or ignition module to ensure engine does not start. Place gear selector in Park (A/T) or depress clutch pedal (M/T). Turn ignition switch to START position, and hold. Measure voltage between starter solenoid terminal "S" and ground and release ignition switch. See Fig. 2 . Also, see WIRING DIAGRAMS . 2. If battery voltage is not present, on A/T models, go to step 4). On M/T models, go to step 8). If battery voltage is present, measure voltage between solenoid terminal "S" and starter mounting bolts. 3. If battery voltage is still not present, clean starter mounting bolts. Check starter for good ground. If battery voltage is present replace starter solenoid. 4. On A/T models, disconnect park/neutral position switch connector. Turn ignition switch to START position. Measure voltage between park/neutral position switch ignition terminal and ground. See the PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH TERMINAL IDENTIFICATION table. 5. If battery voltage is not present, go to step 12). If battery voltage is present, go to step next step. 6. Disconnect park/neutral position switch. Using a fused jumper wire, connect wire between park/neutral position switch connector ignition terminal and solenoid terminal. Refer to the PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH TERMINAL IDENTIFICATION table. Turn ignition switch to START position. Engine should crank. 7. If engine does not crank, check and repair open in circuit between park/neutral position switch and solenoid terminal "S". If engine cranks, adjust and/or replace park/neutral position switch.
Try starting it in neutral, any difference? Ignition switch can also be faulty.
