Starting system problems - 1971 mustang
I'm looking in the Haynes schematics, and I don't see it...
1971 mustang, 250cu, will not start with the key. It doesn't even click when I turn the key to start. The interior lights come on, and you can here the buzzer, but nothing. I cannot jump it by bypassing the starter solenoid (by taking a cable between each side of the solenoid.), however I can bypass the solonoid entirely by taking a cable from the positive lead on the batt to the starter.
I've replaced the solenoid, ignition switch, starter, battery, & volt regulator. I've ran down all the lines to see if there's a fuse, or starter relay in there, but nothing... I really don't see anything else on the haynes schematics that would cause this...
Is the coil a player here? I don't think so, if the car will start with a direct cable from the battery to the starter... and it stays running.
any suggestion would be welcomed. I'm at my wit's end with this thing.
