Never received response. Please refund my fee
Expert:  Donald replied 8 months ago.

I apologize to you Terry. I was waiting for you to respond to my initial reply. I wanted you to try turning your flywheel by hand, just to confirm that your engine is not partially seized. Also, remove your spark plug, then turn your key again to see if your engine will spin, without your spark plug inserted.

Expert:  Donald replied 8 months ago.

If your engine still does not spin, use a screwdriver to jump across your solenoid posts, to see if your engine will spin without you hearing the dull sound. These are just troubleshooting procedures.
