    Not starting

    I have a 2000 automatic. I recently did some work on the car, ls6 valley cover, ls6 intake, deleted air conditioning and most of the pvc system. I went to start the car, and it does not turn over. Battery is fully charged, and all relays have been replaced. fuses checked, and they are good. The starter will not turn, and I get a clicking sound from the starter relay and somwhere near the abs module. Not sure what the problem is. To late to pull the starter, but that will be tomorrows, chore. Any advice would be helpful. Oh and I have the Vats bypassed as well.

    check and make sure your wires are snug and free of corrosion.

    So my friend came over, and we swaped the relays into his car to check if they worked. they were fine, then we jumped the starter and it fired right up. shut it down, and wont start again. I am going to pull some of the wiring harness to check the ground. Seems that is the issue. Anybody with any suggestions would help.

    GM was famous for using inline fusible links in the wiring...

    The look to be no more than a splice covered in heat shrink,
    and cannot be veiwed, but must be metered out to determine if they are open.

    Just a thought.

    I assume you disconnected the battery when you did this work, other than that there really aren't any starting circuit wires in the work you did. Now, when you say you you jumped the starter - how did you do that - jumpered from the solenoid lead to the hot lead?

    don't know anything about these inline fusable links.
    the batterry was out of the car when i did everything, so was the the PCM. I did not jump the starter myself, because I have no Idea how, but my friend said he contacted the positive, with a small post above it. He said he did it to his a while back, and fried the vats, when he did it wrong. I have my vats already replaced, so I don't think thats the problem.

    Side note, does anybody have a wiring diagram for the starter and starter relay. Tried a search on here and other site, can't find one though.

    Terminal B6 of the relay connects to the purple wire which goes to the solenoid. See if you are getting voltage there when the relay clicks.
