Thanks for your reply. I'll try to find the link in the morning. Been hearing a click when trying to start for about a week I'd keep trying then it would finally start. Changed starter and solenoid not even getting click sound anymore.


Have you checked the condition of the battery. Also check the current draw on the main starter cable and check the condition of the earth cable.


Checked links all were good. Wasn't getting any power to the red ignition wire that goes to the s post on solenoid. Ignition tested good. From ignition i went to neutral position switch...changed it and that was the issue. With switch being bad it wasn't allowing power to the red ignition wire. Thank you again for your response to my question.
