Have you checked the main/ecm fuse,s?


yes checked every fuse we could find


Check the fuel pump relay and stater relays,?


checked fuel pump relay,not triped Didn"t knon had starter relay. This doesn't explaln no check ingine ligth and a few others not lighting up on dash when i turn the key on.


If you dont,here the starter click,and fuse,s and relay.s are good,it can only lead to two two thing,s,,starter,or as you say engine light not coming on,along with other light,s,,,would lead to the ECM/brain.
