Question about 1993 Geo Metro
Mom was driving stopped went into store came out & did not start, checked battery, starter store said it was OK. It does not even take a jump. Could it be the fuel pump relay?
Does the engine crank? Do the instrument panel lights dim when you attempt to start it?
If the answer to both of those is no, then you may have the same problem I have had on occasion - the "clutch safety switch" may be stuck and locks out the starter.
If it cranks ok and it has spark, there is a possibility that the fuel injector is "stuck". It happened to me once with my '92. The problem was solved by accident when I used a multimeter to check the voltage across the injector. I watched the voltage drain down to 0 and then I was able to start it and it worked just fine.

Usually when someone does what your mam did they normally catch the light switch lights come on battery runs down but if you are sure the batterys up it is very unlikley that it would be anything to do with fuel or electrics [not immposible] but i would suspect that when your mams tried to start the car its jumped the timming belt teeth when she turned the key it gives you the impression when it is then being turned over of a flat battery with a slight difference in that when the engines turning over it can appear to turn slowly then quickly then slowly ect or just turn over quickly hope it helps yates210456
