Thank you very much! We will try that.

Starter wiring Easy

Find the starter. Locate the solenoid on starter. Follow small wire to a starter
relay. Make jumper wire from any 12 volt source to flash on relay. Starter should make engine turn. Maker new wire from ignition switch to start relay.
Key ignition should make engine turn. Back of ignition switch will indicate which color wire goes to the relay. The safe interlocks will no longer be needed. Frank 78 years and old electrician.........

HELP! We are experiencing the same problem with emergency exits and starting the bus. Along with this, we think we've fixed the wire issue, but now have fuses shorting out because we shorted a wire on the actual ignition!!!! EEK! We have a 2003 International Bus... frustrated beyond belief! Thank you for any suggestions or help-

I I am in the same boat. I have a 1998 rear engine bluebird school bus and wild fixing wires and removing things I now find it wonít start due to the ignition interlock system to need to find out how to bypass it but it seems like I only have three wires a pink or red and orange
