My car has a manual transmission.
Hello, thank you for writing in. The vehicle may be having issues with the starter itself. When it is not starting, you want to check the power supply to the starter. If the starter has a full 12 volt supply, the starter is not working and is going to need replacing. If the starter does not have at least 10 volts, the issue lies between the battery and the starter. At that point, you want to check your relays and battery connections first. From there, you can look into the ignition switch, but they are one of the least likely components to fail unless they have sustained damage. For more help with testing, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
