Car won't start / no syschecks



#1
So today I was backin out of a parking spot and I stalled my car by accident. Oops.

What system or circuit does the ECU control that would cause it to not perform its initial check?

When I take out the ECU fuse, I turn the key to RUN and the battery and oil light come on, but not the check engine. If I turn the key, something clicks and its like it wants to start but it doesn't crank.

However, If I leave the ECU fuse in and try this, none of it happens. No lights, no click, nothing.

All the other interior electrics work, blinkers, etc. Any ideas?

Clicking noise sounds like a bad starter solenoid, assuming you checked the battery voltage and the condition of the cables already.

The easiest way to check the solenoid/relay is to do the starter solenoid by-pass test.
