View Full Version : sr swap into automatic 89

06-12-2006, 09:42 PM
Hello I am having a problem getting my ignition switch to turn my car on. I swapped an sr into a 89 automatic. I have searched and read that the only things that I have to do is jump the 2 wires coming out of the fuse box (black with yellow and white wire) and disconnect the connector under the steering column to release the key. I have done both and still no crank. I actually have to jump the starter to get it to crank. Any suggestions?

Post a picture of the wires that you connected together. I am getting the impression that you shorted a power wire to the big ground cable (hope that you didn't do this).

I dont have any pictures but I know that I didn't ground the power wire to the big ground wire that grounds to the block and chasis right. The 2 wires were coming from the bottom of the fuse box to a connector and then to another connector to the starter.
