Car won't start, battery seams fine. Starter won't turn

Customer Question

Car won't start, battery seams fine. Starter won't turn over
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: Yes I have checked the battery, cables are fine. The battery is only a few months old.
JA: What is the model/year of your Subaru?
Customer: 1998
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. I tried jumping my car first, then I tried to get the starter to engage by hitting it with a hammer.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I have had a check engine light on for a while now. I replaced the spark plugs but that wasn't it. I have been planning on taking it in to get looked at, I just don't have the money yet.

HI there,

Do you hear any sounds at all when you try to start it?
