Default Re: 2.3 ltr starting issues.

I don't know what I was thinking... The rollover above the top of the carpet under the glove box interrupts the power to the fuel pump, not the starter.
Reading from anew, I suspect the lock cylinder is not moving the ignition switch as much as it should, or the wires may be loose on the switch.
If it will start with a jumper on the relay, the starter & relay are 'known good'. If you use a test light on the small starter relay terminal, grounding the other end of the light, it should come on when you move the ignition switch to START.
