Not necessarily, but that depends on what the actual problem is.
First off, I wasn't expecting the no power condition at pin #30
of the starter relay, because that's very rarely the case. So I suggest doing a quick double-check of that first. First confirm that your meter shows around 12.5 volts, when probing the battery terminals. Then take the lead off the positive battery terminal, and touch it to starter relay pin slot #30
, just like you did the first time, making certain that the meter probe is making contact with the metal inside of the #30
If there is really no voltage reading at starter relay #30
, then you need to next check the multifuse, which is located at the very front of the fuse box (fastened with 2 nuts). I did see that you checked the fuses, but no power at the #30
relay pin reduces the root cause to very possibilities, with the fuse automatically being the primary suspect.
Check all of the copper fuse links, which are visible in the front window, looking for broken links. The fuse which protects the starter circuit is IGN2, which is the second link from the right side of the multifuse. If the multifuse appears to be ok, then check for power with your meter at the metal connector on each side (underneath the nuts).
