Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1970 MGB that won't turn over. I replaced the starter about 8 months ago and the battery is holding a charge. When I turn the key I get nothing, no sounds just the yellow light on the dash. I can start the car by popping the clutch and it runs just fine but when I turn the car off, it won't restart by turning the key. I was thinking it might be the ignition coil but I am not sure. Any recommendations/suggestions would be appreciated.


Possibly a wiring problem or a bad starter solenoid.
