Starting issues.

Postby YASHA7FOLD on Dec Tue 24, 2013 4:04 pm

Thought I might as well make a thread about this. So here's the deal. In the near past I have had to push the clutch in harder for the starter to engage. Got under the dash and tapped the switch a few times and all was well. Then over time I had to start pushing the clutch in harder and harder again for the starter to engage. I was then in billings and noticed that the car was thinking the front passenger side door was still open when it was closed. Drove the car back to laurel parked and pulled the bulb out of the door so the light wouldn't run down the battery. Next morning went to start the car and no go. Lights and all that worked but when I turn the key I didn't even get a click from the starter. Ordered a new clutch pedal switch and installed it, nothing. Replaced the ignition switch, still nothing. Replaced the starter, still nothing. So does anyone have a clue about anything I may have missed?

Install push button directly to solenoid. It's way cooler having a button start anyway :)
