Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Jake, answer to your question, yes it was running. My mechanic drove it into his shop and couldn't get it to start, thought it was engine so did the building of block. Was running, had clicking sound like clock was running or something was running, gauges weren't working right, but before I could get that work done, stopped working. By the way renovating car. Bought new battery, within six months and still won't start. Have a diagnosis and am following through.
Porsche Mechanic: Jake, Automotive Technician replied 7 months ago
Thanks for the additional details.By biggest concern here is that you say it’s not even cranking. If the engine is not turning but you get a click (and battery is new) then the ignition and starter circuit need to be checked. Can’t really proceed until the engine is at the least cranking.

before going any further we likely need you to test for voltage at the starter with key to off and START positions.
