Did you check for spark? Will it start with starting fluid?

Check that the engine wire to the starter is connected. I can't remember the vehicle but it had a blue wire that went on the thread as well. I meant a small blue or purple wire.

Hello,

Thanks for the information and you are right it sounds like a wire was left off of the starter and now there is no power to the ignition and other systems.

Great addition to this thread! Please feel free to help out whenever you are on the site :)

Cheers, Ken
