Hello there, many common faults will cause your 2009 Corsa to not start. You have done well in replacing the starter motor as this is a common failure point. The first place to start is to have the battery load tested, as it may have enough power to crank the engine but not actually start. If the battery passes the load test other possible faults are the ignition switch, fuel filter, battery cable, wiring harness fault, or a battery terminal. If you would like to have this checked, a qualified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the starting issue and guide you with any needed repairs.
