    The small wire is located on the starter selenoid. Near the BIg starter wire.

    OK.. This Wire come from the Starter RELAY. Located At the engine compartment Fuse box.

    Near the Battery.

    Try to locate the Relay. Make a by pass on PIN # 2 and # 4. And try to start.

    If start OK. Replace the starter RELAY. But if NOT

    Remove the Steering covers, to get access to the Ignition switch wires.

    With a Regular TEST LIGHT. check if there a POWER 12v. at the Wire BLACK. when you try to start. If Yes. Check the black wire from Ignition to Starter RELAY. for any cut off. or danaged.

    If not. Replace the Ignition switch.

    If you want the WIRING DIAGRAM for the starter Let me know. but I need a E-MAIL adress to send it.

    I hope this help on your problem..
