I am at my wits end trying to figure this one out. If I turn the key to the start/crank position, it will not turn over. I have checked all the fuses in the both the engine compartment and the passenger compartment. It is a standard transmission. I have tried bypassing the clutch switch and that didn't help. If I turn the key to the crank position I can hear several relays clicking when I go from the crank position back to the run position. I also tried switching the relays around and that didn't help. If I turn the key to the run position and then run a positive wire to the starter solenoid, it will crank over and start without a problem. I don't see any obvious wiring problems.
Do you

Check the starter wire that came from the ignition switch for power at the clutch switch if voltage is present your problem its ahead of the switch if not its behind and could be the ignition switch.
The relays are actuated on the "On" position The "crank" its just for the starter !

Sorry it took me a while to get back to this. I used your suggestion and checked the wires at the clutch switch and there was no power. I decided I was going to just put in a manual starter switch that could be used, by turning the key to the on position and just pushing the starter switch. I was looking for a place to wire in the relay and decided to use the horn fuse in the engine compartment. I found the fuse was blown. I put in a new fuse and when I opened the door, the horn started blowing (alarm system). At that point I smacked my forehead. Sure enough, I reset the alarm, turned the key to the start position and it cranked over.
