So, my '02 wagon just started this behavior. It won't turnover. I put in the key, full lights. Turn the key to start and nothing happens. Can't jump start with cables but, it will push start. Any ideas?
I would think it has to be a bad relay, fuse, or bad starter. Those are the usual suspects. If you find the starter relay and there are any relays around it that are just like it, swap the relays and see if that makes a difference.
If you unplug it I think you can jump the connector with a fuse or a piece of wire. I would try a fuse first. if you don't have a spare pull one from the fuse box that isn't necessary for the car to Run. if you do jump it make sure the car is in neutral before you try and start it or it will lunge forwards on you.
