Does the starter motor click or make any noise when you turn over the key? Did you hook up both of the electrical connections to the starter properly?
i put a new clutch in my rex sunday... as this was probably the 40+ time i have done one with no problems, i was tiard and not paying attention and got the little starter wire (stated above my black_krix_si) smashed between the engine and tranny. my car didnt start. i found the problem quickly atleast.black_krix_si said:double check the wires going to the starter. there is a little wire that has a spade type connector. I had an 88 DX and it would always come loose then the car wouldnt start.
It sounds like you shorted something out and it drained the battery dead. Probably one of the starter leads is shorted out somewhere. That would make the most sense since the starter wasn't working.Devin said:UPDATE: ok now the lights dont even come on. WTF!? please someone help!!!!
Have you checked for shorts? Have you visually inspected all the wires for signs of damage? Do you have a multimeter or test light?Devin said:i appreciate the reply but that doesnt do me any good... :lol:
