The battery, starter, cables on this otherwise reliable 87 4wd dual-range Wagon are brand new. Turn the key and you get a click-click-click coming from a six-inch square box under the dashboard. There's a red light on the box. You can feel the click coming from inside the box. Ignition relay?

Thanks in advance...

Update...Problem WAS the battery cable originally. I found out you really SHOULD hook up the little wire back on the starter motor...(LOL)
Problem fixed.:headbang:

It's amazing how reliable they really are - just picked up an 86 Sedan that's been in somone's yard for 3 years (under pine trees - yuck). Started right up with a jump and drove 10 miles to my house. Owner broke a screwdriver in the ign. one day when he lost his keys, and just left it.
