That's because you did it wrong. You put the car in first, hold the clutch down, put the ignition to on, and get the car rolling. Once the car starts moving, release the clutch.Quentin said:cant you just jump it? I also heard you can push a bike and get it going then try to start it like in a car. However I tried this in my manual car once and no luck...But im sure you just need to recharge your battery and dont need to buy a new one.
