Never had any problems with the starter b4. The starter is new as well as the battery so i know its not that. I bought the car with a ton of aftermarket stereo stuff in it and had all of it ripped out of the car because it was just too much. I went to put a new cd player in and removed what i thought was the fuse for the stereo. I heard a noise and went back to the dash and the odometer was reading ----------- all dashes. The Theft light was blinking as well. I quickly replaced the fuse i pulled and odometer went back to normal so i thought everything was ok..... until i went to start the car. All i get is clicking and the car wont turn over. Its a 99 gt 5 spd. Like i said i never had any issues and instantly after i pulled the fuse the car wont start, only clicking. Any help would be appreciated :)

One other thing i forgot to mention, when i had all the aftermarket stereo stuff removed there was also an aftermarket alarm which i pulled out so i have no keyless entry remotes anymore, just keys.

Did you make sure you didn't pop the fuse when pulling it out or putting it back in. I would check all the fuses under the dash and in the engine bay.

With all the aftermarket stereo equipment, you say you RIPPED out of it sounds to me like something is drawing power. Pull the negative cable from the terminal on the battery. Next take a test light, not a digital volt meter and take the clip and connect it to the cable, then take the test light itself the pointed end and connect to the post on the battery. If the test light, lights up you have a short something drawing power. Now the process of elimination, remove one fuse at a time repeating the same process as stated above each time until the light goes out. When the light goes out, look up in your manual what runs off that circuit and take it from there, Mike. SCT Tuner.:bigthumbsup P.S. That clicking noise you hear, when your trying to start it is your solenoid, Mike.
