Here are the details:

Motor was out of the car, harness was disconnected

Running AEM w/single turbo (so all the Stock turbo shit has been cut out)

Starter does not crank (no sounds, no attempt, brand new and connections are tight)
Everything else in the car gets power
Fuel pump turns on, there is fuel pressure
no spark (but then again car doesnt crank)

things i touched:
Installed TH400 (including a quicksilver shifter)
**this means i had to rewire park neutral safety switch.. pretty sure i did it right)
Removed TRAC System completely (From TB and brake system)


Now my question is what can cause the motor to not even crank...
Toyota manual lists these
1. Starter relay (tested mine and its ok)
2. Park/Neutral safety switch (tested it and seems fine)
3. Theft Detterent ECU (no idea how to test it and y it would be a problem)

is there anything else i should check? **battery is fully charged and connections to it are good**

Thanks in advance,
Jon

PS car has started already... drove up and down my driveway.. it stopped starting today after sitting overnight

NOT EXIST said:
Try hitting on the starter with a hammer while cranking sometimes the starter solenoid does not engage
it doesnt even crank, no sounds, no turnover, nothing like im not even turning the key

stupid mistake on my part, i really didnt hook up the park/neutral safety switch

(the park/neutral safety switch is located inside the stock trans... it is on the largest connector; the two thickest guage wires...)

when doing the TH400 swap you have to hook them up to the new shifter or just cross them

i didnt do this
