I do not get 12 volts to the little connector at the starter relay (solinoid) when I turn the key, and it doesn't crank, but when I jump the solinoid it does crank and start .
if it was the neutral safety switch, it would never attempt to start...What trans?
Does it have RAP (Remote Anti-theft Personality) module?
Could be the Neutral safety switch (auto trans) or Clutch Pedal Position switch (Manual trans).
Did i miss something? Does it attempt to start with the key?if it was the neutral safety switch, it would never attempt to start...
there is the possibility of a defective solinoid. you should be able to bring the new one in, and swap it for another just in case...
it could also be a problem with the ignition switch itself...
Poppy, I agree, "no power to small wire"...it ain't the solenoid.....yet.It is NOT you solinoid.
You stated that you do not get 12 volts to the little connector fo the starter relay.
