My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. When the car won't start does the engine spin over or does it do nothing at all?

Some times a jump the battery and it stays days without any problems it seems like the starter gets locked. After a while it unlocks.

Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid just Answer.

There is a Black/White wire that connects to the starter. It's the smaller wire on the starter motor. If you turn the ignition switch to START with the clutch pedal in there should be battery voltage on this wire. If there isn't the most likely problem is the neutral safety switch or the plastic stopper has fallen out of the pedal that contacts the safety switch. You can check to make sure it hasn't fallen out. When you push the clutch pedal the arm moves forward to contact the clutch switch. If you don't see the plastic stopper in the arm, try using your finger to push the switch in and start the car.

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there won't be additional charges for asking questions after you rate so if you need more information just ask me. Thanks
