Default will not start!

Battery, starter, ignition coil, fuses are all good. It will not start, it will not even click. You only hear what sounds like a relay moaning. Just got a job and can't afford to pay someone to repair it. If any suggestions, please HELP!

Does it even crank over? Mine used to just randomly loose all power and it wouldnt crank over and all I had to do was re position the positive terminal on the battery and it would crank right over.

How do you know they're all good?

It could easily be a bad connection. Clean the terminals and re-attach them.

Did you try jumping the starter? (trigger wire to main feed)

Does the battery have CCA?

Neg ground?

Starter relay. That's where I'd start.

The starter may be hanging up a bit
Try tapping on the starter a bit, don't break the housing
also try jump starting it, you may not have quite the charge needed to turn it over

Try and put it in neutral and start it. If it will start in neutral then its your park neutral safety switch most likely.
