this happened to me recently, i got a new battery and it was trying to start when i started it up, all i done was got a bottle of wd40 and a hammer, sprayed the starter motor with the wd40 and gave it a whack as soon as i turned the key, it works fine now, just was abit stuck as it hadnt been used for some time.

hope this helps you out

Re: Won't start
