Car wont turn over and on inspection, there is no power to solenoid when turning the key. Does the ECU give the starter power? Or is it directly from the ignition barrel, but with a relay in between? I swapped the relay and it made no difference, is there a fuse somewhere? Any ideas? Could i run a wire from the ign barrel to a relay to the starter and overcome my problem?

I know it's for an EA but the only EB one I have is for smartlock.

Check the little red wire on starter motor ??
They have been known to have a high resistance due to heat etc on the connection....
Check all connections on battery ...
