old thread, very old, but they did not mention the cables can be followed from the battery to a plastic cover shielding the starter relay. The starter below has a solenoid of its own. the relay enables the solenoid. you would verify the little wire at the starter lights up first, if not? then tap the relay up under the plastic sight cover. part stores have them in stock.
