Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Subaru Impreza 4 cyl All Wheel Drive 140000 miles

My son went to start his car and nothing happened. It did click or crank, just no sound. He has power to everything and I checked the fuses and replaced the ignition fuse. Starter or ignition switch? Thanks.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi darringold,

Thank you fo the donation.

It could be either so you need to test and confirm which is the cause.

Remove starter solenoid switch wire and attach a test lamp to ground. Turn ignition switch to crank position, if power is available you need to check the starter.

Check the neutral start system as well.

I just reread my question and there was mistake. There was no Click or crank of the engine. It does nothing when you turn the key. Still the same answer? Thanks again.
