Did this littlered and I'm getting 12.3v at the starter. It even shows voltage drop when you try to crank it. With that we removed the starter but left the hot and ground connected and tried cranking it to see if the starter would do anything. Nothing. So I went and dumped $130 for a "new" reman starter, got it installed and again...NOTHING. I am losing my patience with this thing.
The new relay came in today and got it in and nothing.
So let's recap, I've got a new battery...no need to charge it, got a new starter, got two new relays and a new 50A maxifuse in the PD box. I'm getting 12.3 volts at the connection on the starter/solenoid which drops down to 11 or so volts when attempting to crank it.
My question is...now what? Could the ignition switch be the problem? I don't know enough about it all but maybe the ignition switch sends a signal to the solenoid? I'm out of ideas.
