My Bosch starter would always go clickity click click when it would rain, or if there would be moisture in the air. Other than bad weather it would always work fine. I decided to replace it with the more reccomended nippondenso (according to what I was told on this site) And now after it was installed the starter will not turn the engine over. there is no noise, not even the relay clicking or engaging, I used to hear before I switched starters.
I took apart the relay and turned the key on amd pushed the contacts of the relay together and the starter started the engine.
I since replaced the relay but still nothing, no relay contact click noise, no starter engagement-nothing. Do you really think It could be another bad relay.
Light brown with a yellow stripe wire going to that relay, ground it and the ignition switch will work. That's the neuteral safety wire on an automatic (if you have an auto, you need to fix the reverse/neuteral switch on it).
Sounds kinda obvious but ill state it neway. Make sure battery is fully charged, I had similar probs on my glh. If the batt is low enuff the relays wont wrk, but u can still have enuff volts to start if u jump the relay. Will it start correctly on jumpers or batt charger?
Yup..... Been there, did that. Brown and yellow wire that grounds to the tranny case was my problem also. I even bought a 2nd starter and installed it and still no joy...well till I was told here to check that wire!
