Re: Dead Battery?

If still silent, try jumping the solenoid directly./ The heavy wire from battery to the wire or post to starter.If only sparks ,its the starter. If it whirrs, look at the solenoid or wire from key.Test the solenoid by shorting big wire to start terminal.Usually a 25 cent coin works.
