    My head hurts!!!

    Hopefully someone can help me out on this because my head hurts and I can't do much right now to fix it (just had ankle surgery last month). I have a 2002 TA with roughly 40k on it and it has been sitting for about a month and a half and I went to start it the other day and it wouldn't start (even after I jumped it in case it was the battery). I know about the security (VATS crap) but the light isn't on at all (I haven't gotten around to replacing the lock cylinder yet) which confuses me to know end. I tried to swap out the relays from the fan to the starter and it still would do anything. Again it's killing me cause I can't do much right now and I want to drive my car when I finally get my damn cast off. Hopefully someone has some ideas for me on this.

    what exactly is the car doing when you turn the key? Is it turning over and just not firing or is it doing nothing at all? When you turn the key do you hear the fuel pump prime? Start simple....check for spark and fuel.

    I turn the key I hear clicking and I hear the fuel pump and nothing else from there. I also posted this on LS1TECH and I've figured out more than likely it's the starter.

    I dunno but id do a FULL battery charge vs a jump start....our rides need alot of juice to properly feed all the electronics computers relays etc. ?

    So I finally was able to get under my car and get the starter out. Took the starter and battery to get tested and the solenoid turned out to be bad so I have one on order and will install when I'm able to so I should be good. I will reply after I get the starter back in and car started.

    Simple fix. When the car breaks down don't freak out as these 4th gens are between 12-16 years old depending on the year. They have taken a lot of abuse plus time and age don't do any good for it as well
