95 350 No start/no crank. Help please

installed a chip on a 95 5 speed truck today. truck fired up once chip was in and ran fine, through all settings.

we talked about some things(me and the guy who owns the truck) for about an hour or so. when he went to leave, the WTS light comes on, but theres NO power to the solenoid on the fender to actuate the starter. GP relay comes on, but when you turn the key, nothing. took chip back out, same thing...NOTHING

We tested for power coming to the little wire on the fender solenoid and theres no power to that wire when truck is tried to crank. i jumped out the solenoid and truck fores up, runs perfectly.

I dont know what we could have done to make this not work. After we had it running the first time we shut it off and the only thing that he did was route the flip up to under the steering wheel. is there something im missing? could he have disconnected something on it? tried looking for neutral safety switch and since i have never really looked under the dash of an OBS, let alone another 5/6 speed truck, can someone help?

thanks in advance!

Clutch interlock switch is under the dash on the clutch master cylinder. Cheers!

could that be the ONLY thing that still allows the WTS light to come on, but will not send voltage to the fender solenoid that kicks in the starter?

Possibly the ignition switch under the column went bad all good until you turn to start or possibly a broken wire between the switch and solenoid

Did you check the fuses(im sure you probably did) but may have shorted something out accidentally when it got routed into the cab. But the clutch switch is probably the most likely suspect

WTS light and glow plug relay are controlled by the PCM, as is the engine management itself. Starter circuit is completely independent of it. The chip installation is just coincidental, unless maybe while fussing around under there, you disconnected the clutch switch.

One final test - instead of jumping the two big terminals on the starter relay, remove the connector from the small terminal, and run a jumper between the battery positive and that small terminal. If that cranks the engine, then the relay is good, and the problem is, as suggested above, "upstream" - ignition switch, clutch switch, wiring. If no crank, then the relay is faulty.

Yeah, im not getting voltage through that wire that goes on the terminal on top of the solenoid. So I know its upstream somewhere. Thanks for the responses guys!

You feel any slop in the pedal? When you start it by jumping the relay, did you try driving the truck, and was it hard to shift?
