Not sure, but do they still have that resistor on the fire wall? May want to check into that. It use to be a 2 wire hook-up, a wire on each end, and with porcelain rectangle body.

It does, but I think that's for the blower motor AC/HVAC.


Did you look around the coil area?

No. What am I looking for?


I am still here, just doing some checking on things....


Have you checked the battery & connections? In the mean time I am looking at a few things...

I've checked all the connections and everything seems to be OK. I thought it might be the computer but I ran the scan tool and no codes are detected.


Would you have a volt meter? To check for 12.5 V on the battery?

I dont. I'll have to check it tomorrow. Good thought.


Is there anything around the battery like a battery temperature sensor? And we need to make sure power is getting to the starter when the key is turned on. There should be a starter relay in the fuse box that may be bad.

I will check on that. Thank you. I'll let y'all know
