Swap stress! It\'s been 2 months start circuit prob
My gosh ... Two months...
#1. All the innards are from a 97 Tracker. Namely: The engine, the ecm, the wiring, the gauges, the gas tank, stock intake and exhaust, ect. Everything is hooked up to spec so that I can get the SMOG NAZIs to let me register my car. I turn the key, lights come up, the relay clicks under dash.... No power to starter.
#2. I bypassed the clutch switch with a 5 amp fuse. So that is not an issue.
#3. I test-lighted the ignition switch, the wire going to the clutch switch... all good till the wire's connector at the starter. Is there another switch that my manual has neglected?
#4. I can jump the starter directly from the battery. (It's REALLY loud too, the samurai starter is working hard to crank the larger motor with the same samurai sized flywheel ~me thinks)
#5 All fuses in the banks are good (I was very suprised to discover hidden inline fuses while redoing the wire looms- how would you find them?).
#6. Could the absence of the airbags be of any consequence? (if so, just shoot me)
#7. There is a small chance that two of the return fuel lines are swapped. But that seams more of a "why won't it fire up?/pass smog" question unless it is some kind of failsafe pressure related "tank-must-have-ruptured/kill-the-motor" thing.
So much effort. I just want to ride again. Please help.
