    hey so im working on a 91 civic hatch... just put a poor mans type r in it and tucked harness.. im having issues with starter... the relay mounts on the side wall by underdash fuse box has two blk/wht wires, a red/blk and a blu/blk wire. the wht/blk wires come from ignition to fuse box then to this relay in the start position... at that time i get power to the red/blk but not to blu/blk.... this blu/blk wire runs to the clutch switch then to ground according to the wiring diagrams i have.. should i get power to blu/blk wire? any help is greatly appreciated upload_2015-1-27_21-17-7.png

    no - the blue/black is in the ground circuit - the clutch switch is normally open - when you depress the clutch, you activate the switch which completes the circuit to ground - if you had power on the blue/black, when you depressed the clutch, you would have a direct short which would blow a fuse
