I have power to the starter solenoid. When I turn on the keys all power comes on and I can hear the fuel pumps kicking and the electric water pump for both the engine and SC kicking. I'm getting ready to replace the battery in the key fob but I don't think the pats is the problem. It drove fine up till the no start so I hoping the engine isn't locked up (no reason for it to be). I'll probably buy a new battery just to replace it. Help????


Battery in the key fob didn't help.

Darrel,
In the OLD days there was an electrical ground strap that went from the engine block to the frame of the car that completed the electrical circuit for the starter. Might check to see if it has come loose or corroded attachment point. I remember this because it caused me a no start condition on a 1984 Bronco I had.

New battery is about 1/2" taller and has a clearance problem with the hood. I worked on the battery box and gain most of the lost 1/2" back but it still touch's the hood according to the play doe that I'm using. I do have a plastic cover on the positive terminal so it's not direct contact.

An electrified hood will stay warm & keep the frost & snow off... it's pure genius!

It's been a while but it seems like when I got a battery that was too tall I rotated it 180 degrees and the positive post cleared easily. But I also did away with the factory battery wires and put my own larger wires in. Also eventually went to a fiberglass hood that had a little more clearance too.

But it did fit under the stock hood.

Yea I had to redo my wires awhile back with new terminals and I don't thing they would fit if I did a 180. But thats a idea I'll look into.

Finally found the problem. when you install the Saleen SC you have to replace the cable from the alternator to the battery. The lug pulled out of the cable at the battery. Fixed the cable with a new end and all is well. I think.






Well the mother in law is on her death bed and the wife is driving me crazy but all else is okay.
