Default Re: no start urgent

As always, someone has to verify that the starter is actually receiving 12v on the PURPLE jacketed wire right on the starter itself. Either a voltmeter or 12v test light (on lead connected to ground (clean, bare metal anywhere under the car) is used while someone turns the ignition key to START. IF this is a 5-speed be sure, very sure the car is in neutral and not in gear else if the starter did turn correctly when the key is turned someone may get badly hurt or worse.

No voltage at purple wire on starter? check battery connections, 12v present at starter? Replace starter. $44.78 with free 2-day delivery at https://www.dbelectrical.com/starter.../sc/1-9-liter/

If an automatic trans, there is not that danger of the car moving until yall move the selector from P to R or D.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
