Quad-Turbocharged Blazer

I own a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer. I was unlucky enough to have the trans cooling line pop out of the radiator and spray hot ATF on my engine.

This causes a minor fire and melted alot of connectors and such. I purchased an engine harness from a 96 blazer. I did not change the harness yet because none of the wires were cut, just that the insulation was off.

I temporarly isolated the wires with electrical tape and checked everything. I attempted to start the car but no crank. All the lights are lid on the dash but no crank.

I have a remoter starter alarm installed but the alarm should be disabled since it doesnt go off.

My questions:

Is the wiring harness from a 97 same as the 96 one? I noticed somewhat different A/C plugs, but i might be wrong.

How can i check if the starter is still good and find out if the alarm is interupting the starter circuit.

Thanks for your help.

Did you have the hood closed when trying to start the truck?

All remote starters have a hood kill switch that will not allow the engine to start via the remote start without the hood being closed.

Might be something to look into.
