      Finished the clutch job but no power to ignition

      The 850R clutch and SMF install is complete on the S60. I pulled the entire engine and tranny for this job. Was very nervous and excited to fire her up as this was my first clutch job. Turn the key and nothing......Battery fully charged. No Voltage up front. Checked ignition fuse #25 and its good. This is my second time pulling and installing a T5 engine so i feel fairly confident ??? I reconnected all electrical components properly. When bleeding the clutch i didn't connect a drain hose and had some fluid spurting around, but i doubt it was enough fluid to short anything. Hoping someone can suggest something i may have missed.

      Recheck the battery clamps. That main hot you tested comes all the way direct from the battery it shouldn’t be key switched.

      There should also be two big hots there, I only see one but it might be the picture. One runs from the battery, the other runs down to the starter, they are bolted directly on top of each other

      Thank you kind sir, that was indeed it. All is well with the swap. Pedal grabs instantly where before it was almost all the way out before the clutch grabbed. I popped an intercooler hose during test drive. I'm getting a fault in Vida for "Throttle position sensor" Guessing ETM is getting tired. Thanks SB for sourcing the SMF and thanks to everyone who chimed in and responded to a few PM's. First clutch job complete !!

      Hurrah! Success. Now go drive it but be gentle on her for a while.
