did all the steps involved in "no crank condition" , except for taking out pcm.
B+ at relay 12v
relay input voltage 12v with key to start
relay output power cable to solenoid .2 ohm
power cable at solenoid gets 12v with key to start
disconnected 12v power wire to starter and relay input wire at solenoid to test and reconnected.
no start still
massaged starter with 4 - 5 rappings of hammer.
started right up
then didn't start
purchased new starter
i have a 2003/04 date of manufacture
also my tech guru friend, where in the hell is this "transmission ground wire" that supposedly caused the problem.
i intend to just switch out the starter, and just do it and be done with it, but i would really like to know where that ground wire is he speaks of, i didn't see any obvious ground wire whilst i was down there.
sorry,mention 04 in first post, thought you wanted more specific (starter models change based on month made in 2003) so i put that more detailed info in second post for you.
forgot about the second part of your question
it every 10 - 20 turns of the key to "start" will give a little electrical tick sound at the starter, and of course you can hear the relays chatting away, but it will only actually crank on a rare occasion (involves mentioned massaging)
