I'm thinking the same thing =0

jr'* - where are the ground busses? what am I checking for? Electrical is my definate weak area. I'm hoping its just one thing thats causing all of this.

Look at the pics in my other thread in 'your ride' of the fuses and relays under the hood, I can quite literally move those panels with the fuses and relays...they are loose. Maybe a bad connection there?
Might be worth checking into on the Relay center fuses...


Also the grouns busses are on the left side and right side foot wells, not too far foward of those wire loom clips that are rotted.... The ground buses may be corroded to hell and back....

Looking at this pic.... you'll see the parking brake cable, to the left you'll see the wires... Now look back a bit and you'll see where its taped with electrical tape, the ground bus is there... There is one just like it on the passenger side too...

the security light was only on because I was trying to start the car with the door open. Otherwise, it does not.

If I can get this thing running I'm not going to sell my SLE.

Hey bro. Try cleaning the battery terminals and all the wires that go to the battery. There might be corrosion there and its not leting the starter get enough cranking amps. if not, check the solonoids and the starter for power. if you got no power to the starter, then it might be a starting solonoid or your ignition swith on your steering column. If theres no power to the starter, then its yours starter thas messed up.

Well If you have mess of electrical problems and you have owned the car from day one,someone could install aftermarket car alarm /remote starter. Open the panel beneth the driver area see what you find look for lose wires and stuff.

Hey guys - I'm going to be checking out the SSEi tomorrow morning from head to toe before I have to work.

Few questions...could anyone with a 93 manual/FSM tell me exactly which relay is for the starter and which is for the fuel pump?

Also, is there any way to check for hydrolock by visual inspection?

Thanks!

EDIT - I haven't had time to look at it until now pretty much. Any help is appreciated. Man I wish I lived up there so the new england crew could help me diagnose this.

Hydrolock: Pull sparkplugs, check inside cylinders for coolant. Check those ground busses under the carpet.

the start enable relay is at the top of the dash above and to the left of the column. When I say top...you are not getting at it w/o removing the dash.

Fuel is probably in the relay center on the passenger a pillar.
