After bypass couldn't get lights to go off when starting and starter would stick. So I figured it would go out (starter) but a few things happened it died but cables weren't staying on the battery (side post) someone tried to alter it to make am stay on made it worse. After it died someone else put. Cables that would reach top post on (only had top post battery) not a real smart fellow anyway. But good guy tried because pregnet daughter with my three y old gradson stranded. Then no charge call me I go jump it and another concerned person helps out with connecting cables as I start it nothing and I m not sure but something alarmed me and got out he said a little smoke came from starter. So I thought jumpercables wrong or the actual terminal cables mixed up???? But then maybe resistors a little to high?? Cause lights not going out prior??? So now another person whom I've paid few times worked on it and said starter I thought well replace be good?? Nope he cut resistors out lost am man I'm not a genius but I had someone else measure and install them cause he couldn't now back to one again I'm kinda broke pissed and stuck. Cause what's resistance? How do I know even trying all fifteen cause the starter ?solenoid? Altenator? Relay? Resistors? And I don't know where to begin but I'm trying to do it myself cause I've had bad experience s (boyfriend tried to surprise me with oil change 2015 subaru and drained tranny fluid instead fifteen $ quart cvt hundreds $ later still fucked up and on and on. Please help. Where do I start again did mention no key right
Drive to store and car wouldn't start jumped start and smoke from startervand nothing not even crank
The vats system was by passed. And charging system was up down. To start the starter was sticking the battery wouldn't start car got a jump and smoke came from starter but the car never turned over like no power at all someone said solenoid but I was thinking the resisters were messes up ( from bypass vats)
