Car Only Starts when I Bypass the Starter Fuse
My car is a 2005 Scion tC (they didn’t have that option when I made the forum.) It does not crank when I turn the key. If I hook up jumper cables same thing. I went through tests to see what it may be. I removed the starter relay/fuse from the fuse box. I was able to put to wires in the fuse “plug” to bypass the starter relay/fuse and the car starts. I went ahead and got a new fuse/relay and when I put it in, the same thing happens. Doesn’t crank at all. I have a multimeter to test different wire connections. I am trying to figure out what the problem is. I think it is the ignition switch or the park/neutral safety switch. I am not sure if that is right or even how to test that. I am adding a picture of someone bypassing the starter relay/fuse for a Scion xD
This is my fuse box, it is slightly different than the diagram you shared.
This image is a picture of how I can get the car to turn over and start. Like I said the fuse isn’t the issue (tested with a new one). That is however where the starter fuse is located.
This is an automatic transmission. With that being said, which contacts should I jump to test the neutral switch?
Is this a good question?
