ok guys went to start it and nothing no click or anything batteries showed full. was in a parking lot so had to get home used a screwdriver to jump left side of solenoid (closest to tire) to the main lug fired right up no bad noises or anything. got home cleaned and tighten all connections at starter. still nothing till i jump the terminals. ohm'ed the push button and it checks out.

i dont see a relay on my starter is it hidden.. its to dark but i guess i need to check voltage at the push button first but any of you guru's have any idea's??

thank you

Some are missing and just using the button. The starter button is easy to test, hook up a DMM and check for continuity when you press the button.

That last post is a bit unsettling from a very new member, to now an ex member!
Maybe I'm missing something that was deleted, "disappointed in the treatment I got overall". I don't see it. Gimp was the first to render advise; good advise. Others offered good past T/shooting. This thread didn't even get wound tight like others have. Maybe other threads the OP started had a negative effect.....

Sorry you weren't satisfied with the service you received. I really don't know what we could have done better, heck I even gave you a link to a schematic.

I think it's my fault. Back a few days I gave him a warning about using foam filled tires on the road, but then I gave him a pep talk to encourage him. Well he responded rather negatively to my and a few others comments. I was having an extremely bad pain night that day and fired back (I know I need to control the inner beast). He of course fired right back and said a few things, then he told me "don't comment on his posts" , so I didn't. I think others felt the same way I did. Before anyone comments on my bad behavior, ( I know I shouldn't have gotten so angry) is civility gone in our society today ? Is telling someone something their doing is going to cause harm a bad thing now ? So I can no longer tell anyone that the bridge is out so turn around and go back because it will hurt their feelings ?

That's been in the rules for a long time ;
• Do not post unfriendly or insulting comments or replies to other members., This can start unpleasant exchanges which no one wants to read in an otherwise valuable topic. If someone has posted a rude comment to/about the user, the user itself is asked to ignore the remark and report the offending post for review and deletion.

But this was added due to hurt feelings;
Answering questions:
Please do not reply to a question with a 'Read the TM' or 'Did you search?' type reply that lacks in content. If a question is posted that could be answered from the TM's, provide a link to and details (page) where the answer is contained. Alternatively, if there is already a thread documenting the answer, a link to that thread is also acceptable. On mobile devices, it's understandably difficult to respond with a link. Giving specific information such as the TM number in which the info can be found is acceptable. Or some helpful keyword to aid in searching.

Rusty,
If the bridge is out, I want to know. Experience is the best teacher, however I'm through with learning the hard way.
