Re: Car won't start even a little bit

Check the small connection on the starter solenoid, the ignition wire I think its white in colour, unplug the cable & clean the connector carefully with some emery paper & some electrical contact cleaner, refit connector possibly tightening it up slightly with a pair of plyers & using a little vaseline on the connector to prevent it from corroding again. Once reconnected retry starting the car. If this doesn't cure it get someone to turn the key to cranking whilst you tap the starter with a hammer. If the car turns over using the hammer then you will need to replace the starter motor.
