Thanks, I will see if these are worn. I would have to say that by bypassing the system and going straight to the starter, my issue will be there.You would need to look at the starter generator brushes to see if they're worn. The brushes should have a wear indicator line on them. If the line is flush or into the brush holder they're bad and need to be replaced.
Starter ordered, will let you know that outcome.I just picked up a 99 and am having same issue. Was interested to see what you came up with. I liked that you jumped right to the starter. I know you said your battery tested fine, but I wonder if you had a bigger battery and do the same test if it would make a difference. I might try this with mine. Otherwise, I think a new starter might be in order.
