I hunch you have a bad starter, try this, have someone hold the key in the start position as you rap on the starter if it starts replace the starter soon this trick will only work for so long before it doesn't work. I hope this helps. Take care.


Have you tried to jump it? If it starts, then your battery has died and will need to be replaced or a cause found - like something was left ON (courtesy lamp, radio, glove box lamp, etc). If it does not, then try "Mike's" starter trick.
