      The car is manual. If you are going to suggest the clutch switch, I have reason to believe it isn't. The starter solenoid will give an audible click when trying to start the car but not without the...

      Thanks for the great insight. I thought about that and checked what was exposed of that wire, following it back into the main harness loom. Everything seemed ok.

      As stated earlier, after a few...

      I replaced the starter and the car cranked right up. Turned it off and restarted it 5 or 6 times with no hiccups. Next day, started it in the morning to warm the car up before work but had to turn it...

      When I bench tested the starter myself, it's popped out and spun fine. Brought it to advanced and had them bench test it. It failed for amperage draw. Got a new one under warranty. I'll throw it in...

      Starter bench tested ok. Again, that doesn't rule it out completely, just makes it even more unlikely.

      Anything else before I just go get a new one?

      It sounds like a bad starter but I replaced the starter and the problem persisted. I guess its possible the new starter had the same problem as the old, I just find it highly unlikely. I haven't...

      I had the issue a while ago and replaced the starter only to have the problem continue. I think I can comfortably rule that out. Which relay is in question?

      Still looking for an answer. Just got the car started which took about 15 minutes of cycling the key and sometimes holding it in the start position. Well I found out the the starter solenoid got very...

      Having already done this but with the car in service mode (front clip off), I don't think I would ever do it any other way. Pulling the trans out the front of the car was much easier. I recommend it...

      Looks fine to me.



      It's been confirmed that the click sound is coming from the starter solenoid as if it's not engaging the starter motor. I don't think it's the actual solenoid since the...

      Pump primes when the door opens as it should and audibly runs when the key is turned. Don't think that's the problem.

      Looks like the grounds and connections are all right and clean but I'll check more thoroughly tomorrow in the daylight. Do you mean the solenoid that's a part of the starter? Or is there a separate...
