Re: My baby will not start
You may have with the following:
1. VATS/Security - use the key and go to START position. No crank, then turn ign sw OFF/LOCKed, then pull out the key. Wait min 3 minutes, then attempt to start with the same key.
If engine starts, need a new tumbler or bypass resistor across the two white wires equalling the key chip resistance.
2. Start relay may be burnt - needs replacement.
The clicking may be an accessory powered relay not powered in START position.
A final test of the starter, and as suggested, place a screwdriver, or safer, a remote starter button, across battery positive stud and the S terminal of the solenoid. Key to IGN, then press remote starter button and starter should crank, engine should start, if there is distributor reference pulses going to VATS module and then VATS is satisfied and passes a hand shake to ECM letting the injectors work and engine starts.
If the above happens, you might add a remote start button to the inside.
