Sounds like your battery died on you. Pop the clutch, drive to AutoZone, have them do an on vehicle check of your battery and alternator. It's free. But I doubt it'd be your alternator if you can pop the clutch to get it going.


On second thought, you could also find a friend or neighbor to help you jump start it. If that works then I'm pretty sure it's your battery, but you should still go get it checked out.

Pull the starter and have it checked and or pull the codes.

Have you checked how well the car grounds from the battery? Do the instrument lights and such turn off after the starter clicks?

DO you hear the starter winding up??
Check your fuses. I have personally bought bad starters.
To go home put them on and have to pull them and test them.

It's rare. But it happens.

Ok so i fixed the problem.. The car wasnt grounded enough I ran ground wire's from the starter bolt, the tran, and the intake to the negitive on the battery and it started right up.. sounds like it runs better too.. the rpm is now at a solid 1500 everytime... thanks for all your help..
