Default weird intermittant no-start

Have this weird intermittant no-start condition.

Chased it down to the wire for the starter solenoid is not getting any voltage. Car has completely redone engine and chassis grounds... that's not it. If I take a jumper wire and jump from solenoid to battery it starts right up.

Get a click from a relay in the cabin somewhere, but that's it.. battery load doesn't increase either. It *seems* to be heat related but sometimes the car won't start when it's been sitting in the sun for a few hours.

I'm thinking some sort of relay inline, maybe alarm... I don't have a wiring diagram so I really can't chase further. Help!


Car is a 95 BD (legacy) 2.2 SOHC AWD

What has the clutch got to do with starting??

Do USDM models have some sort of 'cluthc switch' that would disable starting without engaging it (I'm sure my european version doesn't)?

FYI - it's an auto, no clutch switch

Where's the starter relay?

Yes. You have to push the clutch to the floor board to start it. just like the auto has to be in park. It makes it impossible for someone to drive into a building when trying to just sart there car. (Yes, that has unfortunately has happened.)

ON an auto. do you have it in Park. couldn't resist.

I would take the relay too. It should be in the under-the-hood fuse box.

any specific one? They're all marked AFI0 - AFI6 or something like that. IE, all all marked the same with different numbered suffixes.

Geez, I wish I had a factory service manual for this thing... but they're not $50 lik ethey were for my Mazda
