87 Subaru GL wagon. Clicks when key is turned.

It def sounds like a starter prob, if you have replaced the wires its more than likely the starter motor itself, also check the battery voltage

1998 vw jetta gl if key is turned to the start position there should be a wire energized for starter (starter relay) right?

Yes, but don't get starter "solenoid" confused with starter "relay". The circuit should go from the starter switch to the fuse box, to the relay. Then the circuit will either go to the start solenoid or a secondary, larger relay. I am not certain about VW, but many manufacturers are using two switching relays in order to "step up" the load capacity. This is so the actual key-switch only has to control a tiny load, which makes it last longer.
If you do not have an open fuse link, it is time to find a wiring diagram. In my experience, I have always found that if one calls the service manager at the dealership, he/she is happy to provide a photocopy of a wiring diagram. The diagram will make it clear if there is one or two switching relays, and even what color the wires are and so on.
I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

96 voyager wont start. Turn key and nothing happens. No problems with battery or starter.

Check relay in relay box under hood on driver side near strut tower. Map should be on underside of cover of relay box. Also, try moving shifter through all gears slowly as you hold key in start position, in case safety neutral is faulty.

1989 volvo 740 gl. Put new starter in, now it

i cannot remember but i think there is a starter relay, its located in the engine bay the wire color is the same as its is on the starter motor, and feeds back to the relay, in the relay box in engine bay if this model dont have the relay as some models did not have it fitted and it was a straight from the ignition it can cross over on the ignition switch, and that would need to be replaced, or changed to button press, were by cutting the wire on the starter wire on the ignition and feeding it to a switch button.

1990 volvo 740 GL. If you have electrical starting problems whre do you begin and end with troubleshooting. I have cleaned all the connections on bat terminal, changed out the 2 black 40 amp relays....

If you haven't changed the fuel pump relay, that will be the problem.
It's the one on the right side behind the ashtray.
Hope that sorts it out for you.
