no click of the solenoid , it tried to crank very weakly but after that nothing had it towed to my shop will check for power to the starter with my test light will check clutch switch under the hood because it is not located at the clutch pedal that i can see. i also tried to push start it but to no avail, or pop the clutch, which points to clutch switch
