Is your car a manual or automatic? If a manual, make sure the loop of
white/yellow wire at the red bulkhead connector in the engine compartment
has good contact. If an automatic, make sure the white/yellow and black
wires at that red connector have good contact. In either case, make sure
you have good continuity to ground at the start inhibit relay's
yellow/white wire, which -- forgive my memory -- is either terminal 85 or
86, and a good 12v connection at terminal 30 of the start inhibit relay.

Happy hunting!
