Problem, but dont know - light "check engine"

Recommended Posts

i m totally lost and i ve no idea what to find, i ve used car yesterday and half today without any problem or other symtpoms, came to our car meeting, let the car run for free few min and cut off (as always) but after some time whan we want move out, i wanted start ....nothing dead silence.

when i turn key dasboard lights r on, i hear click on battery and typical sound of something (think pump) and than nothing only light check engine still there (+seat belts and handbreak).

what to find? starter? some fuse?

Starter solenoid? If you get somebody to turn the key to start and listen carefully you should hear it click. If you don't there's an issue. Do the obvious check fist, is there the really big wire going to the starter solenoid AND a much smaller but still heavy duty wire going to another terminal on the solenoid?
