The trouble I am having is that I am not getting the starter to turn over. It has power to it and it works. It is not the relay switch and the motor is not locked up and neither is the flywheel. It appears that the electrical signal is not strong enough to turn the starter motor. Any suggestion?

An auto parts store might verify if the battery is up to par.

Check out my link below.

We bypassed the battery with a battery charger that has a start option ran it direct.

Was not able to get the starter to operate the way it should. I know the starter works had it tested and is new also the starter relay is new.

Did you look over my long boring link with pictures?

No clicking or slight starter movement?

That puppy got a security system that might keep you shut down?

Give me every description of your vehicle they gave it (like SE, SLT, ETC.) Or give me the VIN number might take me straight to a correct starting diagram in "Prodemand". I will post it for you/maybe give other suggestions.

Your Turn,

I am Baaaaaack!

I got one diagram

I had to make three screenshots to get it all (Prodemand will not just let you copy it, as they are a 'pay' manual)

So anyway at the bottom they look like one chunk, there are three pieces.

The first is the top, second is middle, third is bottom. I made sure that they overlap so nothing is missing, some is repeated.

You could print these and tape them together if you want to.

You have a neutral safety in there, some fuses, a fusible link. Things commonly that fail.

Prodemand gives the names, numbers and locations to find the items in the diagram.

I am no salesman, but, our site also has a way to buy rent the entire manual for most modern vehicles. If you surf or perform a search at the top of the page you should be able to find them. If not, let me know, I locate them for you.

Keep us posted
