We replaced that too and it clicked but still no start. See the first problem with this car is that someone had taken it upon themselves to decide they were capable of adding alot of electronioc equipment and lots of new wires without taking into consideration what they were shorting out in the process. The only reason we have not given up is because it really is a nice car. But none of it makes sense.

Well we found the problem. This is really embarassing but when we tested the fuses they tested good. What we failed to do is check for missing fuses. I will be sending my donation and really appriciate your help you have been extremely helpful. The fuel pump fuse was missing in fuse box. The fuse diagram was missing. On this car unfortunately it powers the EFI relay that powers the computer.
