yup all the warning lights come on.pextor said:could be the clutch safety switch. also could be the ignition switch as I previously mentioned.
do all the warning lights come on like they should?
try push starting it, if it can safely be done.
Yes, I've had this happen before. Clean and make sure the terminals connect tightly. The stock terminals are very thin and flexible (crappy) metal. Now is a good time to upgrade them for less than 10 bucks with some heavy duty terminals from an auto parts store, they'll never fail you. Also, make sure the connections are tight on both ends of the grounds at the starter, alternator and battery ends. Finally, make sure your "little black box" is conncted tight. I moved mine to an existing hole in the firewall when I upgraded the terminals, it has never moved and come loose and I have not had a single starting issue since the upgrade.ZX2Fast said:The problem is the battery terminals have corrosion built up on them. Remove them and clean the white/greenish powder from them with a wire brush and re-install them.
If you have a bad connection from being loose or dirty, you'll get ZERO power. Jumping can't work without a complete circuit.gaspi said:The problem is, that mine won't even start with it being jumped from our other car, so it cannot be a terminal issue, I would assume! Any ideas?
