Question about 1986 Chevrolet Chevy
I've got a '75 Blazer that has gone through so many starters.....
Even though you're sure you wired the new starter correctly, thats where I'd start.
Pull it off and double check. In fact, I've gotten 'New' dead starters before. Bench check it.
I know its a drag but so it's not a total waste of time, I've got a tip for you that has saved me a ton of time when I'm working on the engine.
While you have the starter off, run a second wire from the start terminal on the solenoid up into the engine compartment. This will be your 'Remote/Test Start'.
Add a heavy duty momentary switch and your problem is solved.
But that's plan B, We're still on Plan A.
Reinstall the starter.
Touch that extra wire to +12V DC and it should turn over (Just checking)
Assuming all is well so far, my next target is near the base of the steering column.
There are two wires plugged into a connector on the top side of the column near the floor. They are usually purple and orange (but could be anything).
One is the line to the starter, the other is the power. This is usually where car alarms with a 'Starter Kill' feature are hooked up. See how good it works?
Make sure these wires and their connector are tight.
Try it again.
Try these steps and let me know how it goes.
