Hello . My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you with your concern.

Here is a list of items to check and inspect.

Does the engine crank over??

Does the engine crank but not start??

Is the battery fully charged??

Did you make sure all starter connections are clean and tight??

Did you touch anything under the dash by the clutch pedal during the repair??

Is there any aftermarket remote start or alarm system installed??

Is the theft light in the dash flashing fast while attempting to crank the engine??

Can you manually crank the engine over by hand using a wrench on the front crank bolt??

Please let me know the results if you need any additional help by hitting the reply button.

Thanks
Drew
