I’m leaning towards the problem being in the fuse block itself. Would you think the same?

If the relay energizes when you turn to start, the control side is working.

Did you verify no power to the purple wire at the starter solenoid?

Relay has two pins energized in start and on position. No other pins energize when in start position.

There should not be any power on the other 2.

We are beyond that now and working on the purple wire to the solenoid.

Again, if you have no power to the solenoid, and the relay is clicking, you have an open in the purple wire from the relay to the solenoid.

Yesterday after I got home from work, just for grins, I tried starting the car. All the warning lights in the dash came on as expected, including the security light. It went back out as it should. When I tried turning the key to start, the security light began flashing rapidly, just like it did in the video I sent you a couple days ago. I’m thinking the issue may still be with the security system. Thoughts?

Yes, I agree.

Can you check for any codes set and did you try the reset for the system?

Code reader shows no codes. I erased codes after fixing an overheating problem. I did go through the steps you sent me for resetting the security system. But I will give them another try and let you know the results.

So, it ended up being the ignition switch. I appreciate all the guidance I’ve received from y’all.

Hello again, I’m back to having an engine that won’t turn over. Security light stays on solid when key is in on position. No power to relay or starter fuse. Reset steps you sent me a while back have no effect. Last time, I replaced the ignition starter switch and it fixed the problem. This time, as of now, I’ve replaced the key cylinder and put another ignition starter switch in. Starter fuse isn’t blown. Relay has continuity across 2 points. But no power getting to them at all when key is turned on.

It was registering an engine misfire code. But I replaced the plugs and plug wires and that stopped that problem. Now it’s showing engine speed input circuit no signal (P0727) and crankshaft position sensor (P0335).

Okay, the 727 code has only 1 result. You need a ECM. It has failed. You need to replace that first before looking at the 335. The 727 could take care of that code as well.

It also take care of all you other issues.

You need an advanced scan tool with access to GM technical web site to download the software.

Otherwise, you need a shop to do this for you.
