I have changed relays and repaired all corroded wires in the relay block located behind the left front fender. I have also tried another (used) TIPM with same results. Could I have a bad ignition switch? Can anyone walk me through detailed testing procedures for ECM and TIPM? Unfortunately, I do not have schematics but I do have test lights and meters. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good morning,

I attached a wiring diagram for you to view. Check the two wires highlighted for power with the key in the start position. We are trying to see if a signal is being sent to the TIPM.

Hi Roy. Sorry for the long response time, I just got home from work. So I am trying to figure out where exactly to check the wires noted. Is this connector shown in schematic sent located at the Ignition Switch or at the TIPM? Thanks!

TIPM

The pins highlighted need power in the start position.

Hi Roy! I determined that the connector shown in schematic is at TIPM (Pic wasn't clear). However, I am not clear if the wires/pins highlighted should be in same connector or across multiples connectors so I tested all wires with same color codes. Test was conducted with key in the start (rotated in full forward) position. Following are the results:
Pink/Blk Wire (14 Gage?) In Gray connector has power;
Pink/Blk wire (16 Gage?) In Blue connector has no power;
Yellow/Gray wire (16 Gage?) In Gray connector has no power.
Any thoughts?

Those wires are in the same connector at the pin number listed. Look at the pin numbers on the TIPM.

Schematic looks like it calls this the "C" connector? The C-Connector in this vehicle is brown and has no yellow/gray or pink/black wires running to it?

Okay, check the pink/black off the ignition switch for power.

Then check the wire at the starter.

Looks like the TIPM is the issue.
