2000 pontiac Sunfire starting problems

Asked by Apr 22, 2013 at 12:32 PM about the 2000 Pontiac Sunfire SE

Question type: General

I am having trouble starting my car. It has been running fine until the other day when i went to start it, nothing happened. I have changed the battery and still nothing.
The radio, fans and gauges work, but it does not want to even try to start.
You starter motor does not make a sound (like when the battery is dead, you hear a clicking sound, it does nothing). Could it be a relay problem, or the starter motor?

the clicking is the solenoid, if it's not clicking it may be the solenoid or ignition switch

If you jump the starter B+ to s terminals and it doesn't do anything then it's the starter solenoid, if it cracks then it's something in the wiring or switch itself.
