I don't know where to start, whenever I turn the ignition I hear what sounds like relays clicking but nothing at the starter. I have a brand new battery and am certain that the battery is good. I have "crossed" the starter and it will crank that way but even with the ignition in the run position, it won't run. There seems to be a disconnect or something between the starter or ignition relays and the starter. I can't figure out what the problem is. If the vehicles security system is bad or has lost its programming, will it turn over at all or will it completely disable the starter? What do I have to do?
