    Click click click click

    All I hear is my mfi relay clicking when I try to start. I've checked the ecu and the caps are fine to my surprise. What could it be?

    Have you tested the relay itself?

    I just replaced my actual starter switch in the column. What the cylinder rotates when you turn the key. Fixed my no start/clicking problem. No more turning over problems again. Something to look at if you find the relays good, and of course the starter.

    Try simple stuff first. How's the battery?

    I would definitly check relay (which I know your doing) and try jumping it. Also if you have a O scope test for signal pulse.

    Replaced the starter still clicks... 12.8 volts at the starter I've tried a different battery. The car did start once but now I noticed there is a relay missing in box in the engine bay in the starter spot... Does this need to be there?

    its the blue one thats marked starter on the cover
