Please Help: Samurai is not starting

A couple of days ago, I replaced my battery because the old battery did not start. My Samurai worked fine then today. it will not start. I thought my battery malfunctioned and I bought another one but the Samurai is still not starting. When I turn the key, there is no noise or anything. It does not even crank. What should I do? Thank you for your reply.

"put it in N. and use a srew driver to jump the sileniod. Make sure its in (N)."

What do you mean by N and jump the silenoid? A person tried to give me a jump but it did not start still.

Re: Please Help: Samurai is not starting

look at your starter.... see the small wire just below the big 1 from the starter???? take a screwdriver and short between the 2 connections.... its the same as turning the key.... this will tell you if the starter is good and if you have a problem in the wiring getting to the starter

neutral (N). Now corrected me if im wrong anyone. If your sileniod is bad you can test it by putting a screw driver on both poles on the sileniod thats on the starter (just be carfull) this will complete the circuit alowing power to go to your starter. And the idea on the clutch switch would be the best and easiest to start with, just make sure the switch is making all the way when you push the clutch in.

My wire that hooks in the middle of the starter has a habit of falling off you should check that.

Re: Please Help: Samurai is not starting

The same happened to me a week ago. First I cleaned all the grounds on the firewall, also added new grounds to frame and engine block took about a hald hour or so. This didn't help then i jumped out the clutch safety switch and it started. but in cleaning up the grounds, I fixed a lot of squirrley things that were going on in the electricial system. The switch was the main problem, but if your zook has much rust on it then going through the grounds will make a world of difference. just my 2cents worth
