check your starter key switch on the steering column.
the contact for the starter is wired to the key selector.
you need the Factory Service Manual fot trace out the wire. In general, the starter wire is red, the current runs from the battery to the key switch then to starter motor.
If you have wired from stater to the battery directly, you are bypassing the key switch.
The clutch switch is mounted on the top side of the transmission near the converter housing. again, you need to located the FSM in order to figure out exactly where it is.

SOURCE: engine wont crank
im looking at that circuit , on the start relay on your radiator support , red is always hot via fusible link , purple to solenoid as you say , orange/black wire should be hot in run or start mode , if it is not the fuse for that wire is PCM/ABS 10 amp located fuse block in driver door jam , it does go through the nuetral saftey switch , the yellow wire going to the PCM must ground that relay to activate start mode . last note there is a PCM/CRANK fuse in the driver door jam also , 10 amp , if all this is good i would like to hear more . 1 more note about the nuetral saftey switch is the pink wire going in and the orange/black wire coming out should have continuity in park and nuetral ....let us know thanks

sounds like there is a dead spot in the starter. i think the other stuff may not have needed to be replaced. when the car won't start, have someone try to start while you TAP the starter with a hammer.- probably the starter, though.

There should be a starter relay up by the battery on the inner fender, right side of the vehicle. There is also a starter solenoid on the starter, correct? I'm going to ask if you have it in park, neutral or the clutch pushed in, if so still no crank? On the starter relay, on the fender, there are 2 large teminals and 1 small. With vehicle in park or neutral and brake set pull the small wire off and using a jumper lead put 12V to the small terminal, the engine should crank. If so now check and see if you have power to that small wire when you turn the key to start. If not it could be the neutral safety switch, clutch switch (manual trans) or the ignition switch. There is also a fusable link that comes off the starter relay that could have blown. Do you have power to the ignition, do the lights come on, on the dash, when you turn the key on? If so the fuseable link is probably OK. If it don't crank by jumping the starter relay the problem is between the relay and starter. That relay sends a signal to the starter solenoid.
