No Start! Battery full,immobizer responds, gauges are active!

I had the alternator belt snap and towed the car home about 2 months ago.I installed a new belt and it was running great.

 

Parked the car in the garage for the last few weeks. Went for a qucik spin today and ran good. Turn the car off in front of the garage and that was it! Had to push it in.( up a hill)

 

No starter activity, no clicking sound, nothing at all. Similar situation as if trying to start in gear,  dash indcator for gear position shows correctly.

 

Does anyone know if there is a fuse for the starter? If not, could it be the solenoid start wire or solenoid itself?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm certain that others with more experience will chime in, but it is my understanding that the solenoid has a push on connector which can get corroded. If this is NOT the problem, the car can likely be started with a STAR machine connected to the OBD2 port.

 

The SAM also has a key switch position 2 input, which can be damaged by water intrusion and corrosion on the SAM connectors and printed circuit board.

Thank you Smartdriver,

I will take a look at the SAM unit and see if there is power coming out of PIN 33 (blue/grey lead) from output connector N11-8

 

Cheers!

Not Pin 33. Key Position 2 is on Pin 38.

 

Checking the voltage on Pin 38 of the cable harness will only indicate that you have a good key switch.

 

Pin 38 is an input from the key switch to the SAM and will not confirm that there is water damage in the SAM or a corroded starter solenoid connection.

 

The SAM output to the starter solenoid is on connector N11-6 Pin 1.

 

Measuring the voltage there when starting the car would determine if the SAM is OK or if it is starter related.
