Default Accidentally let the clutch out now car won't start

I just bought a new turbo s with a competition stage 6 6 puck that I admittedly still trying to get used to, and I accidentally killed it and now I won't start. I put the clutch in and hit the start button and it clicks once with no turn. I tried jumping the battery with no luck. Has this happened to anyone else? What should I check first? It would be kind of weird if it was a battery issue because its been starting fine before I accidentally killed it.

I was in the same boat as you. Car was honestly fine, left it overnight, and it won't start the next morning. Turns out I had a really really really dead battery.

Bought a new one and it's fine now. Hopefully that'll be your case too.

Hmm, signal wire I'll have to try that. If that doesn't work I think I'm going to try a new battery. Hopefully it's that simple. Someone was telling me it could be something crappy like a crank sensor. The check engine light has been disabled on the car because of all of the modifications so it could be anything. If it's the battery its kind of weird it didn't have any problems starting until then. thanks guys I'll keep you posted.

Did you flood one of the cylinders due to some unreasonable amount of fuel tuning?

Um, maybe it woukd be a good idea to TEST the battery to see if its good before just replacing it.

Troubleshooting works. Try it sometime...

If jumping it does not work it is not the battery unless your battery has a really bad short inside of it. If lights come on full brightness when you turn the key, then it is likely not that. You can test the battery with a meter to see if it is sitting at or above 12V to be sure.

Can you turn the engine by hand (with a wrench)?

CLOCKWISE ONLY, my friend.

Or does roll starting work?

Check the clutch interlock switch, you should bypass it either way when using that kind of clutch.
