My car has 170000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello. If there is no ground getting to the starter relay then the computer is not energizing it. Typically when this occurs it is due to the computer not receiving a signal from the ignition switch or from the transmission position sensor. It may also be the computer itself.
The way to know for sure is to use a computer scan tool that can see all of the powertrain control module data. I usually monitor it to see if it is getting these signals. If it is missing any of them then that circuit needs to be diagnosed. If it is and does not energize the relay then the computer is bad.
