car died and wont turn over and main relay makes funny noise
« on: February 12, 2011, 06:30:14 pm »
my car died. we pushed it and poped the clutch and it started and i drove it not far and it just died. the main relay made a funny noise and i replaced it with another one and it seemed fine but the car would not turn over, and after a couple attemps of turning the key that main relay started making the funny noise, i try to see if the car would turn over buy puttin a wire on the starter and nothing. i checked all my fuses and they are fine.
any ideas

Battery connectio ns. Also look at the ground on the clutch cable bracket.

just checked all that, sanded down all the grounds,
and if the terminal was loose would the radio and all still work but nothin happen when i turn the key,
could the starter be stuck? would that make the main relay act dumb

Here is a stupid question?

Factory harness or wire tuck?

Next.

When you turn the key any noise?

If no noise look at temp gauge?  If it is going straight to hot then you have an open ground.  (meaning starter)

it is a factory harness wired for an ls swap and i have been drivin it for month,
i changed the starter and got a new battery cause i was havin issues with it startin and that fixed it cause the battery was bad, i was drivin it yester day and today and to day it just did that out of now where, right before that i did put two bolts in my dizzy cause it only had one bolt in it, then i tried to start it and it made the funny noise then we poped the clutch it drove fine for like a hundred yards and it just died like it ran dry of gas
