Now that i finally got the turn signals working properly..:D first time for me to ever see sequence turn signals. Anyhow, the car will not start. New battery, with plenty of power. The starter will not even kick in. Ive checked the cables, but what about fuses???And it is a brand new starter.

At the small post closest to the battery. Put a test light between it and ground, then try to start it, if the test light lights up the the solenoid is maybe bad. you can test the solenoid by jumping the solenoid with a srewdriver, connect the srewdriver with the hot post and the small post next to it. let us know how it goes.

thanks for the response...but i got it started today. What happened was that the car has a hood tach. and the hood was off of it, so i had to attach the tach back up for it to start. Thanks though.
