My 82 280 zx wouldn't start Monday morning. When I turned the key, the dash lit up, fuel pump buzzed, but solenoid didn't click. So I put in a whole new starter assembly ($39.95). Now the solenoid clicks, but starter motor still does not engage. Just for laughs, I tried to push start it and that worked fine. New battery seems to have plenty of juice. Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you short out the solenoid with a screwdriver, does it crank?

I took my starter back after it did that. they gave me a new one. You can jump the starter by toucing the remote and positive wires on the starter. I would check the ignition module too

Check the spade connector that hookes to the alt. Have someone turn the key to start and see if the connector has voltage.
