Hey everyone. My 86 GT has been having some issues starting lately. I turn the key with the clutch and brake down and nothing happens. I can usually pop the clutch, but sometimes that proves futile. Wondering if anyone has that sort of issue, and how I might go about resolving it. Thanks!

If the engine isn't even turning over try bypassing the neutral safety switch, I have had to bypass it on both of my Fieros.

No Neutral Safety Switch on a manual....
Check the Clutch Start Switch on the clutch arm.
Yellow/Purple, disconnect plug from switch and jumper the contacts in the plug.
If it starts, the switch is bad.

Check for basics like loose and/or corroded battery connections!
