Hi hmac. Okay. Maybe the battery was not bad because after I charged it, Autozone checked it and said it was okay. I believe it was some type of load test because it was more than just checking the volts I believe. Not really a good answer but this is the best I have at this point for the battery. The new remy starter I installed 2 years ago is under warranty for free replacement with rockauto. Com / remy so why not change it obviously. Then I'll certainly know if the battery is an issue by how the new starter cranks. Also, if the battery dies by the time I finish my compression testing tomorrow then I will make it a spare and buy a different one. Maybe optima.
Yes I did check the fuses several times under hood and under dash. As far as the relay, changed the eec relay on the drivers side of the engine compartment and switched relay on the passenger side of the engine compartment with a known one next to it that works. Now, there may be a mistake. It seems they are the same relays. Maybe I should just go ahead and change it or at least better confirm the one I swapped into its place to check is an exact match
I did change the diode on the drivers side by the other relays and checked the diode with the multi-meter. Its okay.
I will check fuse 1 again just to make triple sure.
Fuel is going. Got 37 psi with key on and when engine is cranked with just one spark plug out you can smell the fuel. When I removed the plugs today, I can smell the fuel as well.
Good point about the security system. There is a factory one installed that is a shock sensor and starter inop. Checked both fuses a couple of days ago and one was blown 1 I was so happy 1 then I found out that the blown fuse was only to my siren. My next door neighbor the on disability ex shop foreman for NYC buses so he is not a fired shop foreman and I reviewed the schematic on the security unit and we both agreed that the security unit is only a starter kill and not an ignition kill as well regardless we jumped the starter kill with a paper clip and it worked as well as when it was not. When alarm was set it worked properly as a starter kill and when not set the starter works.
