Sounds like a weak starter, or battery
I left out one thing its got a new starter and a new battery is doing the same thing after i bot the new battery and starter and I've got all ground wires hooked up and clean... but everyone i ask abt the problem they're like i don't know what's causing the problem everything reads right. also i took a screw driver to by pass what ever it was to the starter and the starter would just spin and not ingage but when i turn the key the starter ingages. i don't know what's wrong I've tryed everything...
You have to jumper the solenoid. The small wire at the starter for the bendix to engage the flywheel.
Funny i did that and it didn't engage the flywheel but when i turn the key it engages the flywheel...
Same thing power from switch and remote power to single wire usually purple to solenoid doesn't make since. Something's wrong should engage
