First ,try charging the battery, if that doesnt work, try push starting it down a big hill.

If it doesnt charge, but push-starts, I would reccomend a battery, but it is possible your starter locked up, I went throgh 4 starters on my 04' ... now i have a kickstarter. :icon_biggrin:

To check your starter, take a peice of wire and touch it to your positive post on the starter and battery, if it turns over then its your solenoid, but remember, if you have a dead battery, this part is pointless.

Get yourself a new solenoid! Or check the fuses in yours first, they have a spare one in there.
