Re: car wont start
A new battery doesn't necessary mean it's new. Could be a clogged fuel filter, clogged air filter, clogged fuel injectors, defective plugs plug wires and or distributors. Have battery checked. Then proceed from there.

the voltage from the big red wire is battery power
the smaller wire will not have voltage until the alternator is running
one wire goes to the charge light to the voltage regulator
check that the voltage regulator is operational
better still get an accredited auto electrician to check the charge circuit , voltage regulator and alternator for operation
The FC3S is notorious for this and fueling issues. Check all ground points, battery cables and connections. Check the draw from the starter. If the voltage drops below 10V there is not enough power for the ignition, causing weak spark. It really needs to spin over 200rpm cranking. Pop starting does not necessarily mean the compression is good. You need to make sure it cranks fast enough to get a proper compression test with rotary tester, New NGK plugs, new NGK plug wires.
right either a bad earth cable from neg on battery to engine block or a faulty starter motor where the the windings have cooked and overheated thereby causing a short and a slow turn over check the earth cable to the engine first as this is often faulty due to corrosion on the engine end
Make sure you have the car properly in Park with lights off and try. If there's no clicking you either have a very loose terminal on the battery or the battery is no where near charged up enough. Try to jump start with someone wiggling the wires for the jumper cables. Once it starts clicking, leave the wires alone and let the battery accept a charge about 10 minutes while the other car is hooked up and then try again.
If you can hear a click (quite loud) from the engine compartment, but
the starter won't crank, this also could be caused by discharged
battery.Battery problems - Discharged or dead battery is one of
the possible reasons for a car not to start. Very common is the
situation when we forget to turn the lights off overnight (the dome
light, for example), which causes the battery to drain. In this case
when attempting to start a car, all you will probably hear will be a
clicking noise - there won't be enough power to turn the starter.
Here is the simple way to check if the battery is discharged: Turn the
ignition on. With the engine off, turn the windshield wipers on. If
they move way too slow, much slower than usual, the battery is probably
Also look at the dashboard lights - if they appear very dim, the battery
is probably discharged.
If the battery is relatively new, it can be recharged. All you need
to do is to boost your car and let the engine run for a while to charge
However if your battery is more than three-four years
old, you will probably need to buy a new one. Sometimes, an old battery
may even die with no apparent reason, even if the day before it was OK.
If the battery is OK, the starter solenoid, starter
cables or the starter motor itself could be a problem.
Starter motor on this car is imposible to get to..better find the post forward of the drivers side fuse box in the engine compartment where a bunch of wires come together. This is a positive terminal attach red jumper here put the negative jumper on any bare metal bracket of the engine
