Re: Tracking a Short Help Requested

Wiggle the PRNDL and see if it starts in neutral. Thats the neutral safety switch. The next thing to do is jump the starter at the starter. The round end of an adjustable wrench works well. A remote starter switch also works better.

This will prove the starter is good and not failing due to heat.
Next swap relays in the power center with the AC relay to verify it has not failed.
Sadly the next may be a corrosion problem. If the backup lights work in reverse with ignition (good ground)on I would check the neutral safety switch connector which is by the trans dipstick unplug it and check for corrosion. This is a good place to start.
