yea i know u have 2 run it for a fair bit to charge and to be honest i only took it 2 the end of my road but the battery's definetely got good charge but when i turned it off,tried 2 start it.... nuthin.If u bump start it,it goes fine,jump start from another car or try starting it on its own power and nothing happens,all dash lights are on, all electrics work and u can hear the fuel pump prime but u turn the key 2 actualy start it and nuthin...wont make a sound or even attempt 2 start..so cant be alternator or battery?

But it wont start even with a jump from another car?however bump start it and its fine,starter motor jammed or just fuked?the way it looks is that there is enough power in the battery but for some reason that power is either not getting to the starter motor or the starter motor is not working

take the connectors of the starter motor and clean them up. Also test using a meter what feed your getting on the starter cables.

if the motor had gone the solenoid would still work and visa versa, very rare for both to go.

Check all earths ect.

If you can get the starter of connect to a battery to see if it spins.

starter soliniod is mounted just to the side if the starter if u dont know what it is , give it a tap on the end with a hammer , then try starting it , it sumtimes frees it up , or sumtimes starting it in gear shocks the soliniod
and frees it
