    An update on our 1991 Silver Spur II. We replaced the fusible link that had shorted out against the alternator. We now have power to everything except the start circuit. All the warning lights on the dash come on with the key, interior lights come on with the doors when opened, and brake, back-up and headlights work. When the key is turned to start, there is nothing. No relays click, no fuel pump noise, and of course the engine doesn't turn over. The doors lock and unlock with the new key fob from Albers, but we have a problem that the boot won't unlock. It does lock with the key but not unlock, so we seem to have 2 separate problems. The no start, and the trunk. The trunk is minor.

    The no start is as if the transmission is in gear, so we checked the contacts on the column and have found that as we move the gear selector through the different positions, it moves everything at the transmission. So that makes us think it is ok.

    See above
    Trying to get to the starter itself looks to be impossible without either removing some of the exhaust , or pulling the engine! There must be a simpler method, so if anyone can offer any more suggestions we would certainly appreciate it. Thanks for the help so far.
