Did you check the starter relay and the starter it self. Does the battery have 12 Volts?

Just put a new starter in it...someone said maybe a bad ignition switch?


It could be that, you didn't say you installed a new starter..


Check the starter relay first...

Ok thanks

Once we replaced the cam sensor, is there anything we need to reprogram?
