Subaru Forester S: I have subary forester 2001. keyless battery

This answer was rated:

I have subary forester 2001. keyless battery died and it looks like it caused some starter block to initiate. I replaced keyless battery, now it works. But starter soes not seem to get electricity. When I tried to jumpstart, I don't see spark when connecting wires
Hi there,
So the key fob is working to lock and unlock the car for you?
Do you hear any sounds at all when you try to start the car?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I don't hear any sound. All rest of electric (lights etc) workinig


Ok, I would like to have you put the car into neutral and back into park and see if there is any change. Normally if there is an issue with no sounds at all it's related to the switch on the transmission.
Please give this a try and let me know
