I will also email you a copy of the wire diagram so you can read it better.When it doesn't turn over look below your clutch pedal there will be a switch that the pedal pushes when you push the clutch in.There is a yellow wire going in and a purple wire going out.When you turn the key to the start position you should have power to the yellow wire.Now make sure your car is in neautral when you push the switch in with the key in the start position you should have power to the purple wire.If all that check's out good then you will have to get under the car and when the starter doesn't work see if the purple wire has power to it when the key is in the start position.If that wire has power when the starter doesn't work then bad starter.Most likely you have a bad starter but do those test's i told you to do.

Alright next you need to go to the ignition switch when it doesn't start and see if you have power to the big red wire to ignition switch then when turning the key to the start position you should have power to the yellow wire. When you checked the wire's to clutch switch were you probing the wire's with the sharp tip to pierce the insulation to get a connection to the copper wire?Let me know what you find.
