wiring harness issue's and ECU's are problems on these. ex specially 2006/2007's. ignition power comes from start solenoid. i've have seen corrosion on that small red wire go up under the coating and corridor through the wire 1-2" up from the terminal.

Look for a heavily corroded power feed wire.

Yesterday, I had to replace a badly corroded section of 10 gauge wire feeding the cooling fan on a 2007 PT Cruiser automobile. It was separated internally.

I'm getting no current to the second large post on the starter solenoid that goes to the starter motor, away from the battery. It's a brand new solenoid. Turn the key and no current is getting that direction. All four fusible links coming off of the post closest to the front of the sled (and the post itself) have power as do the smaller, secondary posts on the solenoid that go to the two prong connector. But the other post has nothing.

My question is, should that post have power going to it immediately when the key is turned?

I also verified it is not the ECU as I swapped in my other one for a test. I'm trying everything I possibly can before I start tearing into wire loom. That's the last thing in the world I want to start doing right now lol.

You need two items to activate the solenoid.
1. 12V power to one of the small terminals of the solenoid when key is turned to crank position.
2. A ground path for the other small terminal of the solenoid coil to energize it. Some solenoids are grounded internally to the solenoid bracket. If so, make sure the bracket is well grounded back to the battery.

The FST has a starter solenoid with 2 wires, so not grounded through the bracket. There should be 12V coming from the ignition switch and the solenoid is grounded through the start relay in the chassis. The start relay is controlled by the ECM, so unless the ECM is doing the right things, the starter solenoid won't be activated. I'd be a bit suspicious of the relays in the chassis - they are the same ones the 2-stroke guys have had all sorts of issues with. 12V systems need good connections to work properly, a corroded or burned set of relay contacts is all it would take.



I do have a manual - PM me with your e-mail and I can help you out with that.

Does anyone have a preferred place to get replacement relays?

Take a look at the threads regarding relays in the Axys chassis 800s. There is a Panasonic relay being used as a replacement for those particular Song Chuan relays. Would want to double-check the part numbers of the factory relays to make sure they are the same as the ones on the Axys chassis. I did get your PM, will send the manual.

I replaced mine with a cheap heavy duty automotive one off Amazon. The cable ends needed to be opened up to fit on the larger posts on the relay, but a Heavy Duty continuous duty solenoid is going to last forever, so it was worth it.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0064MX7US/
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008R1T5IM/

Anything like that will work.

I tried an aftermarket one that was like stock and it failed immediately. Failed ON! I had to rush to get tools and disconnect the battery to get it to stop cranking!

On another note, does anyone have either:

a) a complete reverse actuator they could sell me or

b) the small plastic gear inside of the reverse actuator?

So i’ve tested all the relays. All click with power supplied and show 0 ohm resistance. Replacing them anyways when they come in the mail.

I crossed the solenoid posts and it turns over fine. Still zero life to gauges, efi, etc.

Im thinking kill switch is bad or grounding out somewhere, but i have a question. When the key is turned, how many prongs on the key switch should be sending current? So far as I can tell, only one is on mine.
