Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
Thanks for that. Yeah it is a no start when the key is in the start position. Starter doesn’t spin or click or anything. I’ll start tracing wires and testing with the multimeter. Thanks for the help. I appreciate the specific details about the starter relay etc.I think we need some common terms.
The ignition switch has off, on and start.
The glow plug light should come on when you turn the key to on.
Then you have to hold the key in the start position.
If your starter is not working with the key in the start position. Then you get to check wiring. You can start with the small wire on the starter solenoid since you were just there checking the starter. It should have 24 volts only when someone holds the key in the start position.
If it does have 24 volts then your starter has issues. Even though you tested it.
If it doesn’t have 24 volts. Then follow the wire all the way across the engine and firewall to the plug at the back of the fuse panel. You will probably find nothing wrong until you get under the dash above the throttle pedal. The starter relay is located under where the radio would be in a civilian truck on a little plate.
It has 4 wires.
24 volts always hot.
The wire to the starter solenoid
12 volt positive when the key is in start position.
If all of those wire do as described then the relay is bad. If the 12 volt start signal isn’t happening then it could be your ignition switch or the position of the ignition switch could have shifted causing it n to to work.
