Re: Starting Circuit Mystery (why won't my engine crank?)

A few tests that I'd do, in addition to what you have done:
  • Does the solenoid circuit draw amps when the button is pushed?
  • Does the starter circuit draw amps when the button is pushed?
  • What happens if you manually jump the wires at the button ("hot wire" the thing)
