Could be starter, ignition, or neutral safety switch. Is it standard or auto?

Standard tranny, new starter, everything is cold dead. no lights, clicks or sounds.


I am checking over all the wires for any bad connections now... I will be back on here tomorrow ... Thanks everyone!


Keep us posted..........


check all relays , you might have radio supresso relay too.


It may just be a dead battery. Have you checked that ? Just because it is new does not mean it is not run down. Have you checked and cleaned the battery terminals and the cable ends?


Have you tried jump starting the car? Checked the clutch safety switch?
