Check neutral safety start switch if auto,clutch safety interlock switch if manual.
do i try to start the can in neutral? if so i did, and it still didnt work
COMMENT by paceguy , November 12, 2012
Try moving the shifter slightly while in neutral while turning the key.if nothing check voltage at the wire on the solenoid as you turn the key,should get 12V,if nothing and u have checked fuses,starter relay etc then suggest consulting a qualified mechanic to diagnose the electrical problem
ANSWER by your.mechanic , November 07, 2012
You will try anything huh? Try the crank bolt...does it turn? Try the starter wire....does 12V get there? And did you try to test the starter using a test light?
my friend who helps me with my car tested it and the light works.. the volts on the other hand, i dont know

HOW WAS THE STARTER TESTED? IF, IF BATTERY FULL CHARGE HAVE SOMEONE TURN KEY TO START WHILE YOU TAP STARTER WITH HAMMER. IF IT STARTS THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO. IF IT DOES NOT START YOU NEED A MECHANIC.
starters good. i took it to the auto parts store and they tested it.. it worked fine. tapping on it didnt help none. thank you
