it will not turn over, you have to wire the starter to positive for it to turn over.
the fuel pump, the core pack, the injectors will not get positive power. i removed the computer it was little rusty, it had a sign of water, i think water been getting to it because the hood is damage. the owner removed the radio sometime ago and i think the wire was touching.
i have change the computer it did not solve the problem, i have change the switch that to did not solve it
