Two or three second delay before cranking/starting, now, it does not crank?

Supposedly bad starter. We don't know how the system works in terms of the anti-theft and starting relays. Thanks for the directions!

There are two relays that run the system, one is the inhibitor relay, and the other is controlled from the smart entrance control unit. Either of these can be causing the problem. Here is the location of the relays and the starter wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works. I would make sure the battery was in good shape because I have seen low voltage cause this problem.

This model has a relay box with 12 relays, 3 of which are anti-theft. They are Anti-Theft 3, Anti-Theft 2, and Anti-Theft 1. Can you assist with a wiring diagram or instructions for this setup please? Thanks!
