    vs commodore ute
    Hey guys, I have currently bought a vs commodore Ute and it had a blow motor so i swapped a new motor in but now it wont start of the key. when i turn the key on all the lights and radio and everything come on but it wont wind over, so i checked the starter motor and earthed it out with a screw driver and it cranked over fine but still wont crank off the key. just wondering if anyone would know what the problem is.
    cheers

    Starter relay. Also bad wiring to starter solenoid. Fusible link near battery.
