Re: NO MORE CLICK click CLICK START..ONLY START! starter relay

Yeah, that works, tucked under the firewall real nice. I just prefer mounting where it is accessible and grounded to the battery.

Re: NO MORE CLICK click CLICK START..ONLY START! starter relay

I've just read all the entries since this first showed up, and finally came to the definitive picture.... http://www.subaru-svx.net/forum/atta...2&d=1263144263

Unfortunately, it looks like this didn't make it to the "How To" area?????
I'm surprised nobody just said, "opposite the brake switch"... Oh well, it's found.

I had my engine out, and changed the location of the Ground wire, found just above the Starter, to bottom of the engine.
I had the click problem somewhat before, but it increased after putting all back together.

Today I will replace the relay, and find out if I have to look deeper.

Re: NO MORE CLICK click CLICK START..ONLY START! starter relay

I have no factory security system, therefore I don't have a relay there?

Re: NO MORE CLICK click CLICK START..ONLY START! starter relay

OK,,, been under the dash, no relay found, did the relay mod anyway, relay just clicks( no starting) I have the console out shift lock box is there ( totally electric, no adjustment there) small Mico switch as the base of the shifter seems to be doing it's job. I guess I'm reduced to the ignition switch??

Re: NO MORE CLICK click CLICK START..ONLY START! starter relay

Necro-bump.

I finally got around to replacing this relay. I ordered the Bosch 0332204150 as mentioned on the first page and went under the hood to start the process. I quickly found the only relay attached to the steering column facing the passenger side, however it looked different than what I have seen in this thread. My "original" Bosch relay was teal and had the part number 0332204161 but was still a 12v 20/30amp relay. As I had the replacement on had I went ahead and performed the switch. The car started as expected but I wanted to post my findings here in case someone else has or had run into the same predicament. Please reference the attached pictures for clarification.

Re: NO MORE CLICK click CLICK START..ONLY START! starter relay

Hola a todos desde España y muchas gracias por todas las aportaciones sobre este problema que afecta a nuestros vehículos.
Después de haber leído todo lo escrito en este lugar, relacionado con el mal arranque de mi SVX Red claret versión USA, y teniendo todos los síntomas aquí descritos y habiendo comprado y colocado un motor de arranque nuevo, reparado el viejo y vuelto a colocar, me decido a comprar un relé bosch para sustituir al que está colocado.
Lo sustituyo, doy al contacto y... click, click.
Toca revisar voltajes:
Cuando falla, en el motor de arranque hay 6,4 voltios, es mucha pérdida de tensión.
El esquema eléctrico del starter es muy sencillo, con lo que me decido a sacar el nuevo relé bosch otra vez de su hubicacion, pero con el trozo de instalación pequeño que lleva.
Ahí me doy cuenta de que el conector hembra de la instalación que queda en el coche tiene los terminales faston abiertos haciendo mal contacto. Los aprieto un poco y vuelvo a istalar el relé viejo, doy al contacto de nuevo y ... voila, arranca y arranca y arranca un montón de veces sin un solo fallo.
Le copio el archivo a Theflystyle para que veáis que es lo que saque junto al relé.
El terminal que apreté fue el que acopla en el blanco.

Good to see you got it fixed, yet another cause of "Click Click'.
