    why did you change starter?
    Maybe the starter was not the issue.

    Re: Starter change

    burn out - ?

    when you turn key - any clicking - dash lights -

    Anyway this diagram will make it easy - unless you have a remote starter.

    Re: Starter change

    the second diagram is easier -
    fuses good?
    does relay click when key moved to start?
    Try moving shifter - N - to start.
    Remote starter yes or no ?
    CEL is light on?

    A test light and diagram auto repair 101.

    Make sure your battery connections are clean and tight. A loose connection will let your lights and radio play but won't pass enough current to crank the starter.

    A simple check is to short the solenoid control wire to the power wire. It bypasses the ignition circuit, if your starter is good it will crank.
