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)
Testing the amp draw on the solenoid and the starter is tough to do without help, so I haven't managed to do that yet.
When I manually jump the wire at the button, the result is the same as if I pushed the button (i.e. nothing happens)
