I have an '01 2.5RS. It does not start. The battery is okay and all the fuses are good. I press on the clutch, turn the key and.. nothing. The engine doesn't even turn. This is at night so I can't get a good look at the problem, but does anyone have any suggestions?

Hear any sounds when you crank it over?

click click = low battery or bad connection to starter

zing zing = bad starter clutch ( i think its the clutch )

nothing at all = stolen battery (lawl)

Need a little more info on how it happened and the noises it creates.

main fuses are okay, i replaced the starter... and the car will start up with a jump, as in i get the car rolling and pop the clutch. i drove it around for about an hour with no problems once it got started.

Are you still having the problem with it not starting? If you are sounds like a battery problem or you have a wire that isn't connected or is corroded. Check your cables.

i've traced down all the wires for the ignition sequence and they appear to be okay, except right by the firewall where i can't get the best view. i'm just gonna bring it into the shop tomorrow and hope they can figure it out.

Take off the battery terminals and clean them off real good. Check to make sure they are on tight too. I had this problem about 2 weeks ago.
