So had a great weekend fixing the master cylinder, cleaning up the chrome bits and re-upholstering the door cards (really my wife
did that part)
After finishing, we wanted to take is out and enjoy it after a long day. I turned the key and the car fired up briefly then died.
After it died I had no power to start it or to the headlights, gauge lights etc.
I traced power from the battery to the starter and it has 12v at the starter solenoid. But that is far as I got.
Anyway, I don't think power is making it to the key but I am just learning about electrical wiring so trying to figure out the best way to troubleshoot.
I found a manual and created the picture below with my understanding of how the starter fires up. I checked power at the end of point 1 in the picture and got 12v. So wondering....Is the picture correct? And if so is checking voltage at point 2 and onward the way to troubleshoot?
Anyway, any help is appreciated. And yes, the positive cable does go to the starter in my car. Guessing the previous owner made that change.
Also included some pictures of the new door cards, cleaned up chrome bits and also the cleaned up white vinyl seats (they used to be brownish but the MagicEraser is amazing!)
