I don't know what testing you have done, as far as wiring circuits? You can see the starter fuse in the diagram, not only check the fuse, check for voltage on the fuse circuit, use a test lite to check for voltage. At the starter motor itself, two voltage circuits, one hot all the time, the other goes hot when starter relay is energized. Check those voltage circuits. The starter motor grounds through engine block.
You can unplug starter relay, use proper jumper wire, between terminals 30 and 87, the starter motor should crank the engine. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
There is no relay involved in the starter circuit of this vehicle . The micro switch you are talking about at the shifter has nothing to do with the starting circuiIt either . If you have a automatic transmission There is on the transmission the park neutral safety switch . Won't allow the vehicle to start unless the transmission is in park or neutral . Ford calls the switch manual lever position switch . Try moving the shift lever to netual to see if it starts .
starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.
did you try jumping the solenoid at the starter to see if it turns?. could be the neutral safety switch has failed or the ignition switch is bad. 1991 camrys did not come with engine immobilizers unless you have an after market alarm.
OK do the head lights go out then you try to start the engine if yes then its the battery term on battery hot if so dirty fitting (wash with Hot water and spray and refit tight and recheck the lights and starting..
IF auto gearbox then check the Park switch on box it has 3 wires on the side of box.(Under car)
CHECK the Poss + wire on the battery and also the Black earth wire to engine (is it broken off engine as there is also a thin earth wire for battery term to body so the lights will work but the starter takes out a lot of amps and if earth lead isent on engine then it wont turn over.
Check the small wire to the starter motor solinoid as well as a lot are push on terms and have come off if not a tight fit.
So check out all above,,, and let me know how you get on Ron
ok.. get out the hammer after all... you need one person to start the car and one to lay under the car and whack the starter with a hammer.... if that doesn't work... before you light the car on fire... keep in mind i've never owned a jag hahahahaha
When you turn the key to the start position do you hear the click of the starter solenoid?
If you do either your starter is faulty or you do not have enough voltage to power the starter. Your lights do not need much voltage nor the solenoid however the starter requires 12.5 volts to start properly. If you do not hear the click check to see if the car is in park properly. The vehicle will not start if the car is not properly in park or neutral...try it in neutral. Check the starter relay, ignition switch, park/neutral start switch.
