Re: engine wont turn over
Maybe you dislodged the clutch interconnect switch when you got out. There is a two pronged connector that runs from you ignition switch to a switch that is located on your clutch pedal under the dash. The purpose of said switch is to keep you from starting the car in gear. I think you can bypass the switch by just running a loop from one prong on the connector to the other-but don't quote me on that, I haven't tried it...yet. I would look there first. you can also check the wire that is running into your Solenoid and make sure that it is getting voltage when you crank the ignition switch, just take it off your starter (the small wire-NOT the one comming from you battery!) and hook a multimeter to it and have someone try and crank it, you should see some voltage. If you do, then it is not your safety interlock switch on you clutch pedal.
Also, for future reference: If you EVER take your dash out, make sure that the two prong connector goes to the right one, I took my dash out to get at the heater core and when I connected the wiring back up the thing wouldn't start! puzzled, I checked everything and about after an hour of getting frustrated, started disconnecting the dash wiring again on to stumble over another 2 pronged connector! Well guess what-I had them reversed! thing started right up after I switched them around. in 20/20 hindsight I should have paid more attention-it was quite obvious that a 12 gauge wire shouldn't connect up to a 20 gauge!
I wish you luck!
