Default Re: car wont start. battery?

I find this decription incredibly hard to understand...

Option 1- I am not clear in the description if when you turn the key to the START position, does the starter turn over AT ALL,

Option 2-Or, when you turn the key to the START position, do you get nothing, no revolutions, no turning over of the engine at all... LIKE NOTHING HAPPENS AT ALL...

if Option 2, then if you have a place to jack the car up, then you could try hitting the starter solenoid with a hammer, you might have to do this a few times, but it might just work to get the starter to do something... worked on my 96 SL2, when the starter was on it's last legs...
