Push start it! It is good exercise anyway, I don't know why the hell they put electric starters on cars with manual transmissions.

make sure you reattached the ground wire from the trans bellhousing to the chassis. Also make sure the brown connector is plugged into the starter

Did you disconnect the starter wire? I don't mean to offend, but you've asked an incredibly vague question. Nobody here is going to be able to help you without some more information. Do the accessories turn on and it just doesn't turn over or what? See if you can't locate a supraforums member in your areas who can come by and help you out.

well, yeah, we grounded that wire coming from the chassis to the bellhousing....pretty sure it's properly grounded etc...also there was a little brown wire that wasn't connected to anything so there was a spot for it on the starter so we plugged it in. Also on one of the wires there is a connector that we couldn't find any loose wire to connect into it...I'll have to take pics....someone just tell me what i should check over...All the accesories etc....turn on and all the stuff works it's just it won't crank, it just clicks

Sounds like the starter was not hooked back up correctly.

man, i would seriously try push starting it. maybe something is stuck and your starter is trying to crank the engine but can't. try dumping the clutch from a quick roll and see what happens, see if anything loosens up. it happened on my clutch install, except it wouldn't disengage from the tranny so it wouldn't go into gear. i just needed to put some muscle into it and give it a good power shift and it jumped into place and worked perfectly. just a thought.

1. Try moving the engine by hand (just turn the pulley a bit) to ensure nothing got stuck.
2. Check the battery! Mine didn't start one time, just clicked, and it was a dry battery!
3. Check the wires on the starter and tranny.

How many wires total are there that i need to check? There was 1 ground on the back of the tranny that i didn't know where to ground it so i just put under one of the cross member bolts... Ill go take some pics....im gonna get it to start....i don't want to take it off the jack stands and figure out it's one of the grounds or something...lol

there are 2 grounds on the tranny, one at the rear of it that DOES ground to the chassis via the cross member bolts. the other is the one at the bellhousing which grounds near the clutch line bracket.

you also have a rear speed sensor wish is a square 4-pin plug, on the driverside rear of the tranny.

there is also a backup light switch, which comes from the passengerside of teh tranny, up and over to the driverside of the trannya nd forward to the engine.

then, the starter; a single-wire/brown plug for the solenoid. then the battery cable.

that brown one looks like the starter signal wire... but 89+ connectors may be a little different. there should be one thick wire coming from your starter and one small one. that's about all i can say without being there.

Ok, so i charged the battery and the car wouldn't start. So i poped the clutch and drove it until it warmed up. Oh, and before i replaced the clutch i put in a new o2 sensor. Ok, so the things i noticed. I smelt like the clutch burning while i was driving it. I drove it very easy. Nothing over 2000 rpm, the car used to idle at 700rpm. I noticed even after it warmed up the revs were idling at 1200 rpm and my speedometer didn't work. And The car still won't start.

Sounds like you're not getting a good connection on the brown plug (that's your starter signal) The click you're hearing is the relay for the starter. There need to be two wires hooked up to the starter for it to work. One is that brown plug. The other is a thick cable from the positive terminal on the battery to the stud/nut on the starter. Hope that helps.

Ok, i cleaned the female and male connection on the brown wire...now the car starts...before all this i was gettin' code 42- vehicle speed sensor, and code 43-starter signal. Now i have no codes....My speedometer still doesn't work..it's up on jack stands and i just tested to see if it would work...it didn't ....only revs.....should that make a difference ? on jack stands or on the ground?
