Re: Car won't start even a little bit

Sorry I read your first post & was under the impression that the car had started with a tow. I would then suggest you check your battery as the electronic ignition needs at least 9 volts in the system for the system to energise so without a fully charged battery then its unlikely it would even start with a tow. But also if your sure that the jump leads had a good connection then that should have given you some indication. You should hear a click dash lights should be giving some clues as well.
Make sure your battery has a full charge and battery connections are also corrosion free & secure.
Also check that you get a 12 volt signal at the small wire at the starter solenoid when the key is turned.
