145K miles / car has half a tank of gas / new plugs and
wires / new battery / Apparent "quick Lube" maintenance /
Click one works
Click two works and the CEL goes off - Starter engages and
cranks fine / (not a hint of ignition)
I can't hear the 3rd click and the position of the car
doesn't allow me to open the door enough to get under the
dash and feel the relay.
I'm tempted to go and get an ignition module...
What say you?
Might be easier to simply have a helper sit in the driver's seat and
operate the starter while you get down on your knees outide the door and
use your right hand to feel for that third click from the Main Relay.
i say you should
1. check for computer codes. depending on that outcome,
2. bother to read the main relay diagnostics like tegger says. /then/ if
3. check for spark.
if not spark, go ahead and check the ignition system. again, follow
