Paul, before you remove the starter check the ground strap behind the
ABS module. Remove it and clean it, that was my starting problem a few
months back. Has nothing to do with my current starting problem
however, replaced fuel pump, had no effect. If anyone wants a good
working fuel pump let me know.
