88 GT w/Mini Starter -- HELP Please
Ok, so here we go...car had been driving fine, went to get gas prior to heading to the track, went to start and nothing. Was able to bump the start to get it home without an issue. First guess since it had the original starter in it was that, so swapped with a new mini-starter, moved the wires and ran a 12 gauge wire as detailed on other threads. When I turn the key I hear both the firewall and starter solenoid click but nothing happening on the starter. Took the starter back to the store just to be sure and no issues with it. Took the battery out of my Subaru and still the same result. Ran a second trigger wire to be sure and still the same issue. Change the solenoid, still the same issue.
Cleaned all the connections at the solenoid, changed the positive cable between the battery and the solenoid, cleaned negative cable at the battery.
Car can still be bump started no issues...Even if I cross the solenoid starter I will occasionally get a little motion out of the start but not much...
1. 2 gauge wire from solenoid to starter solenoid is bad (have inspected it, didn't find anything but can't look inside the wire), I did however light test that I am getting power to the starter through the wire, but whether it can hold the amps needed to fire the starter
2. Could a clutch position sensor gone bad cause this???
Any help would be VERY appreciated since I missed the first track day of the year with this bug...
