RustyRuu Posted June 11, 2017 Share Posted June 11, 2017 Its my turn, so I wouldn't start for a week or two without first tapping the starter with a hammer, then yesterday before work i hear nothing not even an attempt to click the starter, i push it down the street and bump start it. It runs but i can't start it, by turning the key and using the starter. bench tested that starter today everything is good. i put an old 96 2.2 starter in there (it ran when i pulled it) and it did the same thing not even that little click so i made and electrical bridge with a screw driver from the positive starter post to the signal wire from the ignition cylinder and i got a starting car with a working starter, but when you turn the key you get nothing. I dont have a helper at this moment to help me test that signal wire, i have 12v at the battery 12v at the starter. edit. i don't know if i got my probing tool in there enough, i was trying to get it in there as far as i could before you begin to mangle things but i got .01-.02v from that wire, the key being turned all the way as if to start it. what do you guys think what am i looking at? any other tests to do? like the clutch switch (i dont know what its called but tells the car you have the clutch in to start it) should i push it off a cliff yet?
